At the event, we will launch our History Bones exhibition which we are working on with the University of Dundee, celebrating the work of the Brittle Bone Society supporting people with OI.

Friday 17th August shall herald the beginning of the weekend of events with a welcome event launching our historical exhibition, bringing families and medics together at the Apex Hotel.
