    Great

    Thank you for posting this. It would be nice to know how many physicians are interested enough to go.

    Not a problem. It's just too bad that I live so far from there.
    I spent 4 years studying in Calgary, but decided to come back in the Capital's region.
    I should have stayed - there are more CFS events in that city. Way more.

    It seems they're having difficulty recruiting doctors to attend though and are asking for help in publicizing this event.

    I'm bumping this one last time. Was there no one from PR present at this conference with Dr. Peterson? Does anyone know anyone that went? I'm just curious as I'm always interested in what Dr. Peterson has to say! Thanks

    I'm bumping this again because I very sure somebody has information about this conference or at least knows where there is some info. Did Mindi Kittei go? This Dr. Peterson we are talking about!

    Thank you very much ahead of time!!

    This is from Dr Ellie Stein's newsletter...
    " ...a volunteer is writing a summary of Dr. Peterson's public lecture and research presentations. These will be published in the newsletters of the Victoria Support ME FM group, the ME Association of Ontario and the National ME FM Action Network. ..."
    I'm on a couple of these circulation lists and I will post here (unless someone, as usual, beats me to it) when I see the summaries.

    Thanks Rafael - very concise summary. Great to share with MD's.

    I'm about to move from France back to my home country/city of Calgary, so my ME/CFS can get a bit of care in English, and am so pleased there may be a few more educated docs there - even if they are not yet doing much with it.
