BIRD have always been committed to encouraging greater public awareness of bone and joint diseases and helping patients, their friends, family and colleagues understand their condition.
In 2016 we launched our 'Patient & Public Engagement' initiative that focuses on setting up opportunities to connect, learn & share. We know through previous feedback, what great value there is in people talking to others who understand what they are going through. Our goal has been to run a series of events that not only help people connect, share ideas and tips for coping but also helps support groups to make a positive difference to people's lives (see individual tabs for information day posters)
Our popular disease-specific information days that feature talks from experts in the field and provide the information for people that they would like to learn about. We also share opportunities for patients to get involved in research.
Please join us and share ideas from the patients, family & friend’s perspective - we invite and encourage everyone to get involved - you can even find us on Twitter and Facebook or to register for events email firstname.lastname@example.org
