The Scientific and the Organising Committee would like to invite you to the Third International Symposium and Workshop on Giant Cell Arteritis (GCA), Polymyalgia 

Rheumatica (PMR) and Large Vessel Vasculitis (LVV) to be held at Southend-on-Sea, UK from 10-12 March 2016.

The symposium will deliver an update on pathogenesis, clinical research, guidelines, management and outcomes for GCA, PMR and LVV.

A highlight of the meeting will be the imaging workshop with vascular radiologists, vascular surgeons and rheumatologists to discuss different imaging modalities including vascular ultrasound. The imaging workshop will utilise live patients with these conditions that will allow hands-on experience for the delegates.

We have limited number of places available, please register as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Look forward to seeing you at Southend!
