GSK Youth council for asthma

An exciting opportunity has become available to help shape paediatric asthma research and technology in the UK!

The pharmaceutical company, Glaxosmithkline (GSK), are setting up a youth council for asthma in the UK, and are looking for young people to get involved in contributing their ideas and opinions about asthma, research and technology.

So if you’re aged 8 to 18, have asthma, and want to get involved, please email rd.patientfocus@gsk.com to get hold of an application pack. The first open day for the youth council will take place on Saturday 08 September 2018 at the Wellcome Collection in London.
