Recent GBS diagnosis? Read Story of 6 Sisters.
Sunday January 22 from 2-4 pm at Northern District Library, room 200 (our usual room) 40 Orchard View Blvd. (near Yonge and Eglinton).
Come and Chat with a Neurologist:
Not just any neurologist, but Dr. Hans Katzberg from the Prosserman Family Neuromuscular Clinic at Toronto General Hospital. Dr. Katzberg trained at University of British Columbia, University of Toronto and at Stanford. He continues to research and teach at U of T while treating patients at UHN. He has a genuine demonstrated interest in GBS and CIDP and is a compassionate doctor to those in his care. He has volunteered to come and answer our questions and talk to us about our concerns in an informal setting.
So come with questions ready and learn from the questions that others have too. You will hear answers to questions you didn’t know you had. It promises to be an educational, informative afternoon in a relaxed environment.
Bring your partners, family members or friends and encourage them to bring their questions too.
Let me know if you have any questions. Looking forward to seeing you soon.
Jane Field, Director and Toronto Liaison
