Am I the only person that missed this big change? Ignore if you all know about this. I didn't. Glad to see Mikovits on the speakers list. I see the date is 18 August, before the release of PNAS. Did we have anything to do with this org getting Dr. Mikovits on the speakers list? I think a number of us sent emails complaining that she be on the panel and not just on the side-lines. What else have I missed!

we did it

I do think that our letters helped. I was surprised when the lady (foggy for name) at NIH had no idea that mikovits was not invited to present. NOW SHE IS I think we all had something to do with it
