    We are excited to be hosting Dr. David Tuller, DrPH, discussing scientific integrity and clinical trials in myalgic encephalomyelitis.

    Join us at The Leopold Hotel, 23rd October, 7pm, for what should be a fascinating evening.
    RSVP on the event page.

    Dr Tuller has been instrumental in bringing to light bad science and raising awareness amongst a wider audience, and his work to hold the field of ME research to account continues.





    Conference on Oct 18th with Dr Charles Shepherd

    I think it was his childhood home town. As far as I know he's London based - or at least his job is.

    I’m hoping to go to the afternoon one :D

    ETA have had to rethink as I have to travel to an important family get together the following week and need to rest up for that travelling 2 consecutive weeks is beyond current capacity.

    I wonder if there is a BPS article already written and waiting in the wings as a non-rebuttal rebuttal?

    Conference is today!
    Sneak preview of Charles Shepherd's PowerPoint suggests it'll be a great talk.

    Livestream should be on this page: https://m.facebook.com/sheffieldmeandfibromyalgiagroup

    We'll upload the recording to YouTube afterwards for those who don't have Facebook.

    Probs can't keep up with questions on here as well as elsewhere, but feel free to come over and ask on the Facebook site. I'll try to check back here a little though.

    Thanks - the vid had stopped when I went to look, so I'd assumed I'd missed it. Hope it's all going well. Thanks to all involved.
