I can't find any info about livestreaming or if an official recording will be published/archived?

Anyone planning on recording it? A friend of mine is unable to call in, and she'd be super grateful if someone could make a recording available, or a transcript :)

Hi @mango typically those POCOCA calls are telephone based and not officially recorded or archived. Tyere has been discussions here from patients who listened and shared the information.

For those from out of country, using skype will cost much less than a regular phone line...

Jarred Younger, guest on CDC patient outreach call, on dearth of drug trials: "There should always be multiple clinical trials going on."

Younger: "Where's the problem? Ppl focusing on mechanism. But to get from mechanism to drug can take 10 yrs and we have millions sick now."

Date rape drug, GHB, prescribed for narcolepsy, posed by Younger and others as restorative sleep drug for M.E.. Take it and pass out...

I missed hearing this call yesterday. Does anyone know if it will be posted?

Typically it is not posted by CDC.
(And that's too bad because often patients/advocates can't join the call in real time.)

Now I am thinking that maybe Jarred Younger would post it, or else report about it. He is a big communicator with the patient world--with everyone--and does it well. I think that is one of his greatest gifts--not only trying to find intelligent modes of research, to try to bring treatment results to us as quickly and inexpensively as possible, but also to make the links with people, so that the herd of cats we have been, or been dealing with, can come together and find some answers!

He did say not to write down all the medications he was talking about because there were many. He said that list would be made available. How do we get it?
