Issued in the wee hours of November 3, 2009, Dr. David Bell’s latest free Lyndonville News e-newsletter (http://www.davidsbell.com/index.htm#Latest) announces that the revived Lyndonville ME/CFS Research Group has already initiated four projects, the first being a presentation Dr. Bell will give Sunday, Dec 6 in Batavia, New York “Between Rochester and Buffalo,” fee $10 to cover costs.
Dr. Bell states he “will be happy to present this talk to any community, providing a local group or individual pays airfare and lodging. It might be a good way to get support groups active again.”
In addition to covering key points of the WPI Science paper and Dr. Peterson’s testimony at the CFSAC meeting, Dr. Bell says his presentation will offer his “opinions about treatment options that may open up in the future.”
