Launch of the History Bones Project

Along with two of my ward colleagues and the Public Health Minister, I had great pleasure this morning in attending the launch of the Brittle Bone Society's History Bones Project.

The project, run in partnership with the
University of Dundee's Archive Services, will catalogue the 40+ years history of the society - documents, photographs and historic memorabilia. It is excellent that this precious archive material will be protected and catalogued.

The society has achieved much since it was created back in 1968, and continues to help and support people affected by the bone condition Osteogenesis Imperfecta. It is based in Guthrie Street in the West End Ward and is the only UK national charity with its headquarters in Dundee.
