The Brittle Bone Society (BBS) have agreed to take an intern from Bath Uni this summer for a year. His name is Jhon. When Jhon joins us we are looking to have him focus on working on Policy matters that are of interest to the BBS and includes our project of challenges for adults with OI in terms of lack of health care services. He will also be involved in events planning, wheelchair funding applications and all the other work we do.
The BBS is also interested in changes to policy that will affect disabled students who make up a large part of our membership. Thines Ganeshamoorthy will be attending the Westminster Forum Disabled students at university – facilities, support services and the impact of funding changes event. We will include a report of this in our next e-zine. We will also get Thines to present on this at our next Youth Meeting in Sheffield 7-9 April.
