MND information sessions

Good health information helps you to better understand MND, talk with your healthcare team and make decisions about your care. One way to learn more about MND is to attend an information event, either online or in person.

Your local MND Association and MND Research Australia hold information events throughout the year. Each event has a different focus, but they all feature MND related topics.

The events are usually free to attend for people with MND, their family and friends. However, you will need to register for the event through the host organisation.

Events are delivered in person at various locations, or online. Some live events are recorded and made available online after the event.
