On Saturday 1st October 2016 at 1:00pm PC Support NorthWest have a meeting at the Christie Education Centre
There will now be THREE keynote speakers:-
- Professor Robert Thomas who led the team that carried out the double blind test on food supplements leading to the production of the product Pomi-T which is the only supplement of its kind that has been subjected to stringent clinical tests. The results of the tests were that it reduces the rate of increase in the PSA. He will tell us about the development of the product and the other research he is carrying out.
- Yvonne Trace (PCUK) who is speaking on Good Practice for Support Groups - a review of PCUK's Good Practice Awards Scheme, how the scheme works and the resources and support available
- Dr Stephanie McArdle, who is leading research into a Prostate Cancer Vaccine at the John Van Geest Centre of Nottingham Trent University. Stephanie will update us on the progress of her research and tell us about some new research they are doing into how stress levels in patients affect the efficiency of the vaccine after it has been administered to help ensure that a patient is treated when the vaccine will perform at its highest level.
Attendance is free to all interested people, whether members of PCS (NW) or not.Tickets will be produced and issued nearer the date of the meeting although it is not necessary to have a ticket to attend, just show up and you will be made welcome.
Gary asks that as many people as are able please attend this meeting, which should be of considerable interest to PC sufferers. If PCS gets good attendance they will be able to attract other high level speakers to their future meetings.
