In 2022, the British Paediatric Neurology Association offered charities the opportunity to submit research to be considered for presentation at their annual conference in January 2023, which is taking place in Edinburgh.
LDUK’s Press and Community Outreach Manager, Julia Knight, decided to take up this challenge and submitted an abstract relating to children with facial palsy caused by Lyme disease and the experiences of children and their families with this condition. Excitingly, Julia’s abstract was chosen to be shown as a poster presentation at the conference!
The team at LDUK is proud that Julia’s work will be seen by very experienced health professionals, and we hope Julia’s work will produce insights and knowledge that can ensure optimum treatment for children who develop facial palsy caused by Lyme disease.
