Are you affected by a rare or genetic condition? Are you a member of the public interested in finding out more about genomics and health? Join us for a Virtual Genomics Café! This initiative is being run by Wales Gene Park in collaboration with Genomics Partnership Wales. This specialist café – organised with Friends of Cymru Sickle Cell & Thalassaemiawill focus on haematology; specifically hereditary anaemias and iron overload. It will feature relaxed talks including:

  • Funding and expansion of the service in Wales for Hereditary Anaemias: Dr Sian Lewis

  • Blood Transfusion for Hereditary Anaemias (the need, problems encountered and developments): Dr Keith Wilson
  • Introduction to Friends of Cymru Sickle Cell & Thalassaemia: Faith Walker

The Haematology Café will be an informal opportunity to meet others, hear talks from experts and ask questions. It will also be a chance for people to come together and be supported by others in their communities.  The café is FREE, but you will need to register via Eventbrite to receive the Zoom joining link and instructions.
