PCOS Conference in London
Saturday, 09 November 2013
We're pleased to announce that registrations are now open for Verity's next PCOS Conference, which will be held on Saturday the 09th of November 2013 at the centrally located Dexter House in London.
Below you will find an overview of the conference, and you can learn more about each of the sessions, expert speakers, exhibitors and the venue on the following pages (content coming soon!)
If you're nervous about going along by yourself, please don't be! You won't be the only one flying solo, and we have always found that everyone at the table gets chatting really quickly and are all friends by the end of the day. If you'd like to get to know a few other people coming beforehand and perhaps arrange to come together, then pop over to the London conference discussion on our forum.
