Imagine sitting next to an expert in the waiting room. Wouldn’t you want to ask them about their subject? That’s what we do for you. We quiz specialists in their respective fields about their latest research, up-to-date treatment options as well as new findings, and ask them to share their opinion and the tools of their trade. Whether patients, nurses, doctors, researchers or representatives of patient organizations and charities – they all have expert knowledge and exciting information which they love to spread. It never hurts to ask!
