Dr Claire MacIver, Derval McCormack and Richard Cave present on their projects as part of our 'Reach Out, Reach All' campaign.

On 25th May 2023 Dystonia UK hosted a webinar with Dr Claire MacIver (Trainee doctor in Neurology in Wales on the WCAT (Welsh Clinical Academic Track) Fellowship scheme), Derval McCormack (Trainee clinical psychologist, Lancaster University) and Richard Cave (Speech and Language Therapist).

Join us as we delve into the world of research! Dystonia UK supports a number of studies up and down the country dedicated to finding out more about the causes, symptoms and treatments for dystonia. In this special webinar, we hosted an expert panel who have all committed to projects focused on topics relating to dystonia with information on how to get involved.
