Come join us and watch Unrest, a 2017 award-winning documentary. This is a unique opportunity to learn more about the mysterious disease known as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. In the Netherlands, there are an estimated 44,000 to 130,000 ME/CFS patients.

The film is in English with Dutch subtitles.

This is a free event! Admission is free, but you must reserve a free ticket. Donations are appreciated and will help cover the cost of the event. https://social.fund/wqmgbr A donation box will also be set up at the event for cash donations.

The event is open to the public. Everyone is welcome. Please bring your friends and family. Invite your doctors!

Date: Friday, November 10, 2017

Doors open at 18:00. Welcome and introduction around 18:15. Film begins around 18:30. We will have a featured speaker, Dr. Charles Shepherd, and a Q&A after the film. David Tuller and Dr. Linda van Campen will give short talks and also participate in the Q&A.

Location: Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC). Albinusdreef 2. 2333 ZA Leiden. Collegezaal 1 (Lecture Hall 1). Collegezaal 1 is in the main hospital building (Gebouw 1). Use the main entrance (hoofdingang). The collegezaal is on the first floor (1e verdieping). Follow Route 768. A special thank you to the LUMC for donating the room!

Wheelchair accessibility update 5 okt 2017: The LUMC has informed me that collegezaal 1 can accommodate two wheelchairs. I agree with the LUMC about that. However, I personally think that it won't be comfortable for the movie screening. If you are coming with a wheelchair, you must contact me before booking a ticket.
