Second Annual Community Symposium

Visit Community Symposium for event details.

This exciting symposium will follow our collaborative team meeting of world-renowned scientists.

This year our collaborative team meeting will be expanded to three days. The first two days will allow for in-depth scientific discussion of recent ME / CFS research results. On the third day we will establish collaborations and discuss the most effective path forward to
expedite ME / CFS research.

At the Community Symposium, the scientists will update patients and any interested members of the public on our progress towards understanding the molecular basis of ME / CFS and our plans for the future.

Only together can we solve this incredibly complex and horrific disease.

Please register as soon as possible! Space is limited. Registration closes September 15, 2018.

We look forward to seeing you there!

(The conference will be livestreamed for those unable to attend. Livestream registration will be available soon.)
