Good to see the film getting out to universities
*The event is free but donations are welcome with proceeds going to Sheffield ME Group
*The Panel for the Q&A consists of:
Chair is Dr Liz Walton - an academic GP with an interest in ME/CFS
Dr Charles Shepherd - Honorary Medical Advisor to the ME Association
Victoria Strassheim - ME/CFS researcher University of Newcastle
Ms Anne Nichol Sheffield ME/CFS Service Manager
Ms Diana Shapiro Carer of severe sufferer
Prof Annalena Venneri - Professor and researcher into ME/CFS University of Sheffield
Prof Chris Burton Professor of Primary Medical Care University of Sheffield
Found this by prof Venneri. Haven't watched through you can't see the slides so hard to concentrate which is ironic given the topic.
ALERT: CHRIS BURTON.
Need to keep an eye on this one.
What is his position on ME. Has he completely changed and renounced his previous position.
I have forewarned about the BPSers and how they may try to do subvert the Unrest campaign.
ME Militant puts it succinctly

@charles shepherd is on the panel as well I think he'll be aware of other panel members background
Thanks to the Sheffield ME group - who are paying for my overnight stay!
I think there may still be a few seats left for the screening at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine tomorrow (Thursday 2nd) where Jonathan Edwards and myself will be on the Q and A Panel
Anyone else on the panel (and not saying that yourself and JE will not be enough of a draw!)
Some members of the Biobank team will also be on the Panel at the LSHTM screening
Not sure who, but one or more from - Luis Nacul, Eliana Lacerda, Caroline Kingdon and Jackie Cliff
I think we have about 200 people booked in so far - but there may still be a few last minute seats available
Delighted to help. When I heard that you had offered your time, I was determined that the means would be found. When I visited the hotel (it is a nice one) the manager generously, and immediately, offered your room and full English breakfast FOC. Sheffield ME and Fibromyalgia Group kindly found a way to fund the rest of your expenses.
Although this event is not organised by the ME Group, they will have a stand at the venue and a member of the group will be on the panel.
Unfortunately, although I really wanted to be on the panel at this event, I'm unable to accept my invitation, as I won't be in the UK on the day.
The ME Group's own screening is later today and I will be on theirs.
@CarolB well done for your efforts in Sheffield
