Successful seminar on IC/PBS in Birmingham
8 March, 2016
On Tuesday 2/3/2016 over 30 people attended our seminar on IC/PBS and the feedback has been really positive. Urigen asked us to help them to raise awareness of their treatment of IC/PBS and to host a seminar at which eminent Urologist Dr Lowell Parsons would speak. The University Hospital Birmingham was chosen as an ideal ocation to attract both medical professionals as well as COB members. Urigen also invited Mr Mohamed Belal Urology Consultant at the QE to speak at the event. The talks were interesting and the Qand A sessions lively. The event was also supported by Mawdsleys who are the UK distributors of Parsons Solution - the treatment used in the USA by Dr Parsons in his on-going treatment of IC/PBS.
