IiME International ME/CFS Conference report
Thursday 4 June 2009
I am the Patient Advocate for my thirty-five year old daughter. I travel to conferences to observe what is going on in the field. This is not a scientific report. It is a record of my impressions, as limited as they may be. They are presented to give some impression of this conference to those who were not able to attend, particularly patients and patient advocates. I apologize ahead of time for my own biases and editorializing. A DVD will be released of the conference in July and can be purchase for 12 pounds.
This was the third consecutive year that I have attended this conference. It takes place in a beautiful old building on the southeast corner of Green Park. In many ways I could just reprint my report from last year. One positive note was that there were more participants at the conference. Each year it has gotten larger, and this year it was sold out. The government ministers, who were supposed to attend, were “tied up” and couldn’t make it. The conference resolved to send them a DVD of the lectures, urging them to consider these research and treatment efforts for CFS/ME.
