Come learn about the "millions missing," those living with the debilitating disease Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), which disables 1-2.5 million Americans.
MGH Institute of Health Professions invites you to the 2019 Ann W. Caldwell President’s Lecture: Interprofessional Rounds on Tuesday, January 15, from 5:30–7:00 p.m. (doors open at 5:00 p.m.) at Northeastern University, Blackman Auditorium, 342 Huntington Ave (Ell Hall), Boston. This event is free and open to the public, no registration is required. This year’s topic is “Invisible Disability: Providing Compassionate Care for a Person with ME/CFS,” with program moderator Ronald G. Tompkins, MD, ScD, Director of MGH Center for Surgery, Innovation, and Bioengineering. Join us for an excerpt of the Sundance award-winning film UNREST, chronicling the hidden lives of patients, followed by a discussion with an MGH researcher, a health care provider, and patient advocates. This program will inspire you to bring a new awareness about ME/CFS back to your clinical practice.
