    Anybody going to this? Apparently there is a waiting list to attend now. I can't find any agenda for this 3 hour event.

    I didn't see an agenda on the OMF web site.

    It does say it will be recorded, so I'm banking on that.

    Maybe the SMC should send someone over? I mean, they are really interested in the truth and not pushing their client's agendas, so I can't imagine why they wouldn't.

    I'm happy this is happening at Harvard, though. So many hospitals and colleges in the area and even the greater area.

    Maybe the CDC should send someone to actually learn about this disease so we don't have to have anyone sing to us again!

    Would love to know the gist of these two talks from the Nottingham chaps

    Dr Paul Greenhaff, @UniofNottingham, presents on “Impact of inactivity vs inflammation in muscle metabolism.”

    Dr Philip Atherton, @UniofNottingham, presents on the new collaboration with the OMF-funded MECFS Collaborative Research Activities at MGH & Harvard and “Stable isotopes applications and neuromuscular iEMG relevant to MECFS”.
