Following the success of our research symposium in 2021, the Myrovlytis Trust and BHD Foundation are delighted to announce our 2022 symposium will be aimed at the BHD community. This year’s event is an inclusive and collaborative event aimed at a general audience featuring BHD research, personal stories, and an opportunity for the community to network and provide mutual support.

This event is an opportunity for everyone to come together, listen, share stories and shape the future of BHD.
