OMF Welcomes Jonas Bergquist, MD, PhD to Its Scientific Advisory Board

OMF enthusiastically welcomes Dr. Jonas Bergquist to our Scientific Advisory Board. Dr. Bergquist is a Full Chair Professor in Analytical Chemistry and Neurochemistry in the Department of Chemistry at Uppsala University, Sweden, Adjunct Professor in Pathology at the University of Utah School of Medicine, and Distinguished Professor in Precision Medicine at Binzhou Medical University in Yantai, China.
 
His group develops tools for screening and discovery of biomarkers of different diseases. Dr. Bergquist studies numerous conditions, including neurodegenerative disorders. His research into ME/CFS is focused on characterizing the neuroimmunological aspects of the disease using proteomics and metabolomics, with a special interest in cerebrospinal fluid studies and autoantibodies.

Helping Children Succeed in Education

Sample Physician's Letter
 
Dr. Faith Newton, a member of OMF's Education Committee, has provided several Fact Sheets to help improve the educational outcome for children with ME/CFS. To provide additional support for parents and children, Dr. Newton has shared a sample physician's letter to schools. This detailed letter provides sample language for physicians to use to help educate the people at your child's school about the illness and to increase learning opportunities for children with ME/CFS. The letter is available on our website. Please feel free to print or email and share it with your child's physician.
 

Worldwide Tour Spreading Hope Around the U.S.

Linda Tannenbaum has been spreading a message of hope in OMF's research updates in Dana Point, California, New York City, New York co-hosted with ME Action, and in Newton, Massachusetts co-hosted with Mass CFIDS/ME & Fibromyalgia Association. The presentations have had broad support with audiences of parents, patients, caregivers, family members and people learning about ME/CFS for the first time. Overall, people have left the events with a feeling of hope for a brighter future for patients. We are pleased to share that the presentation in NY was recorded and will be made available in the coming weeks on ourYouTube channel. 
 
Some Worldwide Tour events, like the event in Dana Point hosted by Amelie and KeeganHicks, included a screening of Unrest where over 150 people gathered. We are honored be an official partner with the Time for Unrest campaign spreading awareness and hope.
 
The next OMF-hosted screening of Unrest, followed by a research update, will be on Saturday, November 11th at 1pm at California State University Fullerton (CSUF). If you are in Southern California, please join us. Reserve your seat today.  This event is co-sponsored with CFSME of Orange County, Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Center at CSUF and Eta Sigma Gamma CSUF.
 
The next Worldwide Tour visit is scheduled in Los Angeles on February 11, 2018.

Thank you to the many donors who have helped us to make this Triple Giving Tuesday such a success. Your generous donations will help us to accelerate research. If you have not yet donated, please donate between now and November 28th. Every dollar donated helps bring us closer to answers.
 
With the support, commitment and enthusiasm of the ME/CFS and related chronic complex diseases community working together as a united community we are stronger. We look forward to continuing to grow our research efforts with you as our partners as we unlock answers, find treatments, and ultimately, the cure.
