London ME Conference 2007

The second London Conference to be organised by Invest in ME has been scheduled for 1st & 2nd May in Westminster.

The Irish ME Trust would like to see a GP or Consultant from Ireland interested in travelling to this meeting, as we feel that the knowledge gained from attendance at this forum would allow for a greater understanding of the varying complexities involved in ME and CFS and in turn benefit patients who present at the surgery or consultancy room. In this regard, we are prepared to cover all expenses, including registration, should a medical practitioner express an interest in attending. If you know of any such practitioner, please contact us and we will put the necessary arrangements in place.

Once again, there is a very impressive line up assembled for this conference. The first day (1st May) is a more informal day with group presentations and designed for healthcare professionals and ME Support groups. The second day (2nd May) is the formal presentation day for healthcare professionals - doctors, paediatricians, nurses, researchers, students etc.
