Please don’t forget to use #BBS16 on Twitter, Facebook & Instagram! WORKING WITH PEOPLE WHO LIVE WITH OSTEOGENESIS IMPERFECTA Registered Charity Nos. England and Wales 272100, Scotland SC010951


2016 Annual Family Conference Welcome to the Hilton Hotel, Reading for our 2016 AGM. As ever trustees, staff and volunteers have worked hard to ensure it’s a great weekend. We will present a range of speakers on various topics and will offer delegates the latest updates about Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI). The business section of our AGM will take place on Saturday 13th August and we are very excited to unveil our latest film. We will be showcasing our kids talent show for our youngsters and get ready to enjoy our wonderful Gala Dinner. Don’t forget your chance to win some cracking prizes for our Lucky Dip Table Draw. BBS are honoured to have our event opened by the Right Worshipful the Mayor of Reading Councillor Mohammed Ayub. We have secured leading NHS Healthcare Professionals across the field of OI and invited delegates from OIFE, the HPP Community and this year we will hear progress updates on the RUDY study and hear from our own members who participate in this study. It’s important you are confident we provide the best possible care for your children and this year we are gaining feedback for our new Kids Club caring for youngsters aged 0-10. Chairman Elaine Healey, Trustee Board, myself and staff from headquarters hope you have a happy and memorable experience and we aim to speak to as many of you as possible over this funpacked weekend. Please remember to #BBS16 — throughout the weekend and visit our social media stand, we want your feedback so we can continue to build on developing the best possible conference programmes for you.

Chief Executive Brittle Bone Society are grateful to all our supporters, sponsors and funders and this year we gained grant funding pledged from Mereo Biopharma and from Alexion Pharmaceuticals helping cover the costs of our conference event.
