Medicine and Me - Royal Society of Medicine

In September 2016, The Royal Society of Medicine and The Encephalitis Society teamed up for Medicine and Me - a forum exploring the latest treatment and research surrounding the condition.

Leading lights in the study of encephalitis gave presentations on their respective areas of expertise and later answered questions from audience members. They were joined by Society Members who shared their powerful personal stories of how their lives have been changed because of encephalitis.
