About me

Graeme's father died from MND in 1979 when he was just 20 years old. At that time there was no specialist care for those with MND and little knowledge within the medical community.  Graeme wants to ensure that care, research and education all continue to improve through the work of MND Scotland. Since becoming involved with MND Scotland Graeme has developed an interest in using technology to improve health and healthcare and is currently exploring how this might be applied to those with MND.
