Dr Alam joins Headway Suffolk Neuro Conference

Neurology charity Headway Suffolk is delighted to announce that Dr Sajid Alam will be a keynote speaker at its fourth Neuro Conference on Wednesday 17 October 2018 at Kesgrave Conference Centre, Twelve Acre Approach, Kesgrave.

Dr Alam is a consultant in stroke medicine at Ipswich Hospital and has a particular interest in the management of TIAs (transient ischaemic attacks or ‘mini-strokes’), hyper-acute strokes and the complex investigations often required after a stroke.

He graduated from The Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry in 2004, a faculty of Queen Mary University of London (QMUL).

Dr Alam has triple accreditation for general internal medicine, geriatrics and stroke medicine.

His main speciality is medicine for the older person, and his sub-speciality expertise is in stroke medicine, particularly in cryptogenic and young stroke.

He will speak about strokes, TIAs and atrial fibrillation.

Dr Alam is the third speaker confirmed for the conference, joining world-renowned health expert Professor Robert Winston and Dr Hilda Hayo, Chief Admiral Nurse and CEO of Dementia UK.

Headway Suffolk has attracted huge interest in its first three conferences, with author Dr Jane Hawking talking about her life as a family carer in 2017, famed scientist Prof Stephen Hawking making a rare public appearance to discuss his life with motor neurone disease in 2016, and local brain injury survivor Andrew Renton taking his first public steps in 21 years in 2015.

This year’s event promises to be another highlight in Suffolk’s calendar, with further eminent keynote speakers due to be announced in due course to address guests on a broad range of subjects related to brain injury and neurological conditions in the healthcare sector.

Tickets are priced at £40 (plus booking fee) and are available from Eventbrite at: www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/headway-suffolk-neuro-conference-2018-tickets-40194431627.
