Supporting the OA/TOF comunity with online Q&A sessions

June saw the start of a series of Q&A sessions, designed to support members during the turbulent times in lockdown.  The TOFS annual conference is a huge event in our calendar, but regrettably we felt we had no alternative but to postpone the event in 2020, until 16 October 2021, and a series of Q&A sessions were planned to fill this gap.  


These are video conference sessions provided on the Zoom platform, where TOFS chair Duncan Jackson puts a range of members’ questions to distinguished guests.

In the first Q&A, we hosted a session with Prof De Coppi from Great Ormond Street for parents and carers.  Early July saw a session with Prof Alyn Morice from Hull who responded to questions from Adult TOFs.  We are incredibly grateful to both Prof De Coppi and Prof Morice for their time, and look forward to bringing more sessions during 2020 and into 2021.


You can view a selection of the questions asked during the sessions here.
