Boys' Brigade

I was invited to speak about the Juvenile Arthritis Research project at our local Boys' Brigade recently.

It was great to have such an involved and attentive audience as I explained what juvenile idiopathic arthritis is, how it affects children and young people, and the current medications available to children with JIA.

As well as raising awareness of JIA and the aims of the JAR project, hopefully some of the boys at Boys' Brigade will have gained an understanding of where a career in Science may take them. Who knows, perhaps it will be one of these youngsters searching for a cure for illnesses in future.
