The IMNDA and TCD MND Research invites you to “Drink Tea for MND” in Trinity!

Every year since 1997, the MND community worldwide has marked 21st June as the global day of recognition of ALS/MND – a disease that affects people in every country of the globe.
Global Day is important because it is one day that every member of the International Alliance has in common to reflect their dedication and role in the global fight against ALS/MND. This one day allows us to recognise that we are not alone in our fight against ALS/MND, and that patients, carers, former carers, scientists, health care professionals, volunteers and many, many others are all part of this fight.
Each year the IMNDA encourages its supporters to get together to mark this significant date and “Drink Tea for MND” to raise bothawareness of Motor Neurone Disease and much needed funds. In the lead up to Global Awareness and to kick off the tea drinking this June the IMNDA and TCD MND Research are hosting a very special joint “Drink Tea for MND” event at Trinity College on Wednesday 12th June.
The two organisations are very excited to be joining forces in the actual building where the Academic Unit of Neurology is based and recognised as the key Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Centre for research in Ireland. This special awareness event will run from 11am to 2pm on June 12th in the Knowledge Exchange, Trinity Biomedical Sciences Institute, Pearse Street, Trinity College, Dublin 2. It will be a great opportunity for Professor Orla Hardiman and her team to present the latest updates on the research programme currently been undertaken by TCD MND Research. It is also a chance for our MND community to come together, drink tea and join the global fight against Motor Neurone Disease.
