Guest Speaker for AGM

Associate Professor Stephen Reddel gave an informative presentation on “The Many Myasthenias”. Stephen spoke with passion about his desire for the majority of his Myasthenia patients to enjoy a high quality of life. He reflected that being engaged in work and the community and being mobile within the home leads to better life outcomes. The Association is truly appreciative of this second opportunity to have him speak in Brisbane.
