Mrs Stella Scrivener Regional Development Manager The Eastbourne Support Group with Dr Sam Panthakalam arranged a fantastic session for people in Eastbourne with Osteoporosis on 17th September at the International Lawn Tennis Centre as part of the 30th anniversary celebrations for the National Osteoporosis Society. Approximately 150 people attended to find out more about the condition and enjoyed hearing from a wide range of speakers. The session provided an excellent opportunity to learn more about osteoporosis and meet others with the condition. Joan Welling Chair of the support group did a fantastic job in ensuring all our speakers and attendees had a wonderful morning.
