As many countries are still in lockdown, people including those living with Gaucher disease are spending a lot of time at home. The IGA is supporting its members in these difficult times with a webinar: ‘Wellness for GD’ taking place on Thursday 11th March at 3pm (UK time).
This webinar will focus on how to improve our health through a healthy lifestyle, nutrition, and relaxation techniques and we will be joined by:
