ME/CFS Symposium Sponsored by Open Medicine Foundation

The Open Medicine Foundation (OMF), the renowned ME/CFS Research Center at Stanford University in California, is hosting a Community Symposium on the Molecular Basis of ME/CFS on Saturday, August 12, 2017. This exciting scientific update for patients and other interested parties will follow a two-day meeting of OMF's huge team of top ME/CFS research scientists, many of them rock stars in the ME/CFS world! You can read details of the Symposium at the link.

Anyone is welcome to take part in the symposium in one of two ways:
1. If you are in California or can travel to the site, you can attend the 1-day symposium in person - there's a button at the bottom of the Symposium page to register.

2. Everyone else can register for the Livestream of the Symposium, so you can watch all the presentations from home (or wherever you are!).
NOTE: The folks at OMF told me that they understand most patients can't watch the Livestream all day, but you can check the agenda at the link to see which speakers you would like to tune in for. They will also be recording the entire day and will either offer a DVD or post the presentations on Youtube (maybe both) after the symposium.

The Symposium is scheduled for next Saturday, August 12, so register today for attending the event or watching it via Livestream! I've already heard from lots of patients (and parents of patients) who are planning to participate.
