As announced in the October 2016 issue of Reach Out, TSA is running a series of webinars this year which will bring our educational events directly to you at work or at home.
In response to the topic suggestions from our 2016 survey, we’ve invited some of our Australian TSC experts to present in our upcoming webinars for people with TSC and their families. Health professionals are welcome to attend.
