At the end of March 2018, more than 30 people travelled from across the country to attend the first PDSA Regional Meeting in Melbourne, Victoria.
Thanks to the assistance of Dale Paynter, wife Susan from PDSA Canada and Roz Klei Bryan, the founder of the ITP for Aussies closed Facebook page, the first meeting was held at the Marriott Hotel in Melbourne.
The event included a mix of patients and carers and information regarding ITP, mainly in Adults, was shared including diagnosis, treatments and a few patients also shared their story.
It was the first time that carers and patients with ITP came together and were able to connect, share their stories and experiences and make some great friendships.
It was also at this event that ITP Australia was introduced.
