The Following Announcement was Issued February 2 to “Friends and Family” by Marly Silverman, founder of Patient Alliance for Neuroendocrineimmune Disorders Organization for Research and Advocacy (P.A.N.D.O.R.A.)
The Information Network Television (INT), a state of the art educational film production company with offices in Boca Raton, Florida, has released their Healthy Body, Healthy Mind video segment on Fibromyalgia (FM).
n The video depicts the personal stories of several FM patients throughout the country, including P.A.N.D.O.R.A.’s founder Marly Silverman and South Florida rheumatologist Dr. Steven Croft.
n Also interviewed were Dr. Don Goldenberg and Dr. Daniel Claw, and patients Andy Wold, Judy Stern, Lynne Matallana (President of the National Fibromyalgia Association) and Judith Becerra.
The educational segment was produced by Phyllis Kramer, and she captured quite well the challenges that individuals with Fibromyalgia experience daily. The video is of excellent quality and it uses special graphics and colors to explain how Fibromyalgia affects the body.
We congratulate its producer Phyllis Kramer and her crew as well as INT’s Healthy Body, Healthy Mind producers for the quality invested in the series. The descriptions of the patients’ lives are quite empowering and uplifting while providing a very serious and compelling description of what is to suffer with Fibromyalgia.
We also take this opportunity to thank the major sponsors of the video: Pfizer and King Pharmaceuticals, with additional funding by Abbott, Inspire Pharmaceuticals, and Genzyme.
P.A.N.D.O.R.A. recommends the purchase of this video by any FM patient who would like to share it with family members, friends and family and your family physicians.
