CFIDS Association Hosting Educational CFS Seminar in Houston, June 9

On Saturday, June 9, 2007, the CFIDS Association of America will sponsor the sixth in its ongoing series of regional kNOw MORE seminars at the InterContinental Houston in Houston, Texas. These seminars, which are being held in cities across the U.S., bring CFS experts together with patients, caregivers, and clinicians to meet the important need for in-depth education about CFS.

The June 9 program, which begins at 1 p.m., with registration opening at 12 noon, will feature two CFS/FM experts speaking on topics of great interest to patients, family members, and healthcare providers. A question-and-answer forum will follow the presentations.

The program will include:

A presentation by Dr. Christopher Snell. Dr. Snell is a professor at University of the Pacific in Stockton, California, where his work focuses on the functional aspects of CFS, particularly as they relate to quality of life issues for patients. He and his team are examining the physical cognitive responses of CFS patients to exercise aimed at providing a comprehensive picture of the bodily processes involved in the production and supply of energy. Dr. Snell hopes that the results of their research will clarify the biological basis for the symptoms of CFS and suggest therapeutic interventions directed at treating the causes of the symptoms rather than merely treating the symptoms themselves.

A presentation by Dr. Morris Papernik. Dr. Papernik is an internist at Rush Presbyterian St. Luke’s Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois, caring for many CFS and Fibromyalgia patients. In addition to his clinical work, Dr. Papernik has been a collaborator for CFS research projects led by Dr. Leonard Jason’s group at DePaul University.

A joint question-and-answer forum will follow the presentations, allowing participants to interact with speakers, ask questions and learn practical information about CFS and FM and how to manage these medical conditions.

A session on the national CFS public awareness campaign, sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the CFIDS Association. Registrants will have the opportunity to hear a campaign update from CFIDS Association president and CEO Kimberly McCleary and to see campaign components like the TV and radio PSAs, print and online banner ads, and printed materials such as a patient brochure and a CFS toolkit for medical professionals.

To register for the seminar, call 704-364-0466, or go to http://www.cfids.org/cfidslink/2007/050708.asp

Tickets are $25 for preregistrants and $30 at the door. Seating is limited, so preregistration is encouraged.

If you would like more information about the program details send an e-mail with kNOw MORE CFS in the subject line to cfids@cfids.org. The CFIDS Association will put you on their mailing list to receive a brochure.
