NMC at Preston Neuromuscular Clinic – Family Day
NMC were invited by specialist neuromuscular consultant, Dr Christian De Goede, to take part in an event for families of young people with a wide range of neuromuscular conditions.
The event at Chorley Hospital Education Centre was well attended by around 25 families.
Jonny Smith, NMC Senior Physiotherapist, gave a presentation to families about the importance of keeping as fit as possible through regular, specialist, ongoing physiotherapy and exercise for patients with nm conditions and the sorts of physiotherapy and exercise provided by the Specialist Team at the NMC.
Dee and Kay from NMC's training team set up Graphic Design Taster sessions which proved very popular with youngsters really keen to take part and get a flavour of what it would be like to enrol for an accredited Graphic Design or Web Design Course at NMC.
Jonny had also brought the NMC Wii fit equipment and set that up to help illustrate some of the fun ways young people with muscular dystrophy can keep fit and active.
