    The first ME/CFS conference in Denmark will be held on the 28th of May, 2010
    at Bispebjerg Hospital in Copenhagen. Organizers are the Danish ME/CFS
    Association and the European Society of ME (ESME). The conference aims to
    educate physicians and other healthcare professionals in how to recognize,
    diagnose and treat ME/CFS. The title of the conference is:
