The PWSA UK National Conference 2018 is a two-day event that brings together parents, carers, professionals and children and adults with PWS, to catch up with old friends, make new ones, share experiences and listen to leading PWS experts as they share their specialist knowledge, insights and advice.

Consensus Gretton will be taking part in the Conference’s Sunday Programme, for those with young people and adults aged 16 plus. Two experienced colleagues, Lisa and Karina Carvell, will be taking to the stage during the afternoon session to share practical advice on dietary management for adults with PWS.
