ITP National Convention

The ITP Support Association held our annual Patient Convention and a Medical Seminar for Health Professionals on Saturday 5th April 2014 at the Letchworth Hall Hotell. Both events ran in conjunction with some combined sessions.

This Annual Convention for ITP Patients featured presentations on different aspects of ITP by three leading ITP specialists and an update on the study investigating food intolerance in ITP by a foremost expert in gastroenterology research.
