    I believe Rivka has been organizing this. She's an absolute powerhouse.

    Ron Thompkins was at the last Stanford symposium. It should be interesting to hear what he has to say.

    If you live in the Boston area, please encourage clinicians in your area to attend.

    Yes, @JaimeS, Rivka is great at this, and so much more! We have many talented wonderful people moving knowledge and awareness along.

    Credit where it's due: quite a bit of this is Rivka's work.

    [Edit: LOL threads were merged, so now it seems as though I am reminding the community:

    RIVKA.

    And BTW, all the Massachusetts team -- it takes a village for a project on this scale. Well done, everyone!]

    There was IMO an unfortunate thank you from a Lisa Nagy MD who thinks we'll all recover (treatments are available) given the tools to do so. She must think that all PwME have a very mild version of it. Which means she doesn't really know very much at all. Dangerous.

    It's not really a thank you, it's an advertisement for her business. It even includes her website. Pretty shady if you ask me.

    I didn't notice that somehow. I don't think Rivka S is on S4ME. Does anyone know how to contact her? I think if advertising for something like that is the purpose it should be removed.

    Although in the scheme of things I recognise it's not a huge issue.

    Have just watched this; for anyone interested the Q&A session starts around 30mins in.
    Also occurred to me that it might be worth someone making a note of the questions asked at these (and other) sessions with medical professionals to add to any guidance for healthcare professionals produced.

    I did -- apparently it's already in the works, though with the bulk of Q&A it may take awhile to transcribe!
