The annual TAMS Conference has been running since 2012. Our Conferences feature many speakers and workshops on dealing with mastocytosis and MCAD and provide delegates with the opportunity to meet others in a relaxed and friendly environment.

The Australasian Mastocytosis Society (TAMS) has been created as an advocacy, education and support body for those throughout Australasia who suffer from or care for those with Mastocytosis or Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS). TAMS has been established due to the overwhelming need for sufferers and their supporters to find a local voice and active support network.
TAMS is an independent ‘not for profit’ incorporated organisation with a committed and functional volunteer committee of individuals – all of whom are sufferers or carers – ensuring your needs will be met.
