Dr. Zamboni & Dr. Simka to testify Canadian Parl. commit

Postby Brightspot » Tue Jun 01, 2010 10:03 am

I just spoke with Christine Holke David (clerk of the parliamentary standing committee on health).

Here are some interesting points which she told me.

She confirmed that there will only be one more meeting of the Parliamentary Sub Committee On Neurological Health which will be focusing on MS / CCSVI.

It will be held on June 15th, as that is a date on which Dr. Zamboni and Dr. Simka are available to be witnesses by video conferencing.
Yippee!!!!!

The the sub committee does not report back to the standing committee until fall or winter.. The sub committee will continue to have meetings regarding other neurological health matters, and a report will go back to the standing committee which includes all of these neurological matters.
(not so much yippee)

Ms. Holke David will get back to me regarding some specific questions that I asked her regarding the government response to the order paper questions which have been submitted to the government on the subject of CCSVI.

Ms. Holke David will also get back to me regarding what official briefs have been submitted to the committee regarding the issue of CCSVI, and from what organizations or individuals, and how I might get copies. She did say that she cannot provide copies of letters sent from individuals, but that official briefs can be made available.

I am thinking that some kind of public event might be in order to coincide with the June 15th Committee meeting.

Ideas and Comments???

From my selfish point of view. I hope this video conference will not interfere with my checkup appointment with dr Simka on June 15th ;-)

My husband's treatment is scheduled for that day also. Maybe we will get to meet, Mila.

Diana,

It would be great, however, your husband will have his treatment at Głowackiego street (in the hospital) and I am scheduled for a checkup at Rolna street (small cninic), where you will have eye exam before or after the treatment.
Wish your husband luck with his treatment :-)

June 15th meeting

There might already be a lot to celebrate that date. That's when the MS Society will be announcing all of the CCSVI grants they will be giving out. This initial funding of research + the testimony of Zamboni and Simka could help be the momentum needed to get the government to commit $10million to CIHR for ccsvi research.
