CSF Open Day, Perpignan

This is our annual get-together when we meet up for a short meeting which up-dates us on events past, present and future. Here is the invitation from Diana Eastaff.

"Hello Everyone, 
Here is your official invitation to our Open Meeting in April. 
This is unlike any other CSF event or meeting because it’s really just a very informal and relaxed social occasion which starts with a short meeting and ends with a long lunch! 
It is open to everyone  - members, supporters, partners and friends. 
 
The Hotel Le Mas des Arcades lends itself to this kind of thing - a meeting followed by a lunch.  It’s modern and efficient and the staff are very friendly.  It’s also very well placed, in the Porte d’Espagne area of Perpignan, just opposite Darty on the other side of the roundabout.  You can’t miss it. 
We start arriving around 9.45 when we can chat over coffee and juice and at 10.15 we sit down for our meeting.
 
Penny will start by taking us briefly through the events of last year and bringing us up to date with this year’s calendar. 
We always have an interesting speaker and this year we are pleased to welcome Dr Rita Jordan who will talk about 'The coming era of patient-centered medicine’. 
She’ll tell us about treatment which is specifically tailored to the patient rather than the disease and the complications of cancer in an individual with other conditions such as autism.
Dr. Jordan is a Professor in Autism studies at the University of Birmingham  where she runs courses for professionals working with individuals with autistic spectrum disorders at all levels.  She has written and researched on many aspects of autism and has lectured and been involved in consultancy, nationally and internationally.
 
Lunch is usually around 12.15 in a nicely-situated private room just next to the Restaurant La Table du Mas, 
I’ve attached the menu which I think is even better than last year.   Do have a look and if you decide you’d like to come, please let me know.  If possible, can you also let me know your menu choices.  (If there are two or more of you, may I ask that you put each name against their desired menu.) 
The cost of this three-course meal, which includes a glass of wine, is €22.
 
I very much hope that you will join us and I look forward to hearing from you.
 
All the best 
Diana Eastaff"
