Our thanks to everyone who attended our recent axSpA webinar. It was lovely to welcome you. This was BIRD’s second axSpA webinar, the first in 2021. The attendance figures were significantly higher than 2021 and we are glad the webinars are proving a useful tool for patients living with axSpA.

Dr Raj Sengupta, (Consultant RNHRD) talked patients through an overview of axSpA and recent research finding. Dr Thomas Williams (Consultant, Great Western Hospitals) presented on medications for axSpA and Dr Ben Davies guided patients on physio therapy tips. Our sincere thanks to them.
