David Hubbard MD speaking @ the MS Society of Canada

David Hubbard MD, neurologist and lead researcher in CCSVI, and father of son with MS (now symptom free for 12+ months), has been invited to speak in Toronto by the MS Society of Canada. Canada has been the battle ground for a fight to get CCSVI in Multiple Sclerosis testing and treatment studies underway; Kirsty Duncan PhD of Parliament has been instrumental in this struggle, along with Drs Hubbard, Haacke, and McDonald.

Hubbard will be addressing CCSVI in MS on a panel with Drs. Sclafani, Rubin, and Selchen on June 17th. He is currently in the process of submitting three research papers for peer-reviewed publication in top medical journals. We hope they will be published before this event, but nonetheless it should be an interesting discussion.

Dr. Hubbard's previous presentations on CCSVI can be viewed by going to Hubbard Foundation's YouTube Channel www.youtube.com/user/HubbFound

Though many questions are answered in previous Hubbard Foundation CCSVI research (to be published this year), many more still need to be addressed. Funding for this important work is provided by people like you. Thank you for your support.
Let's go with the flow!

great find!
Dr. Sclafani is on the panel too, as well as Dr. Rubin and Dr. Selchen? I am unfamiliar with the latter two names.

Three papers submitted for publication! Go, Dr. Hubbard! If one of them is on his fMRI results, I would expect that to cause a stir.

Hi PCakes, he wants to see something other than the anecdotal stories. He wants to understand CCSVI better and he is NOT against it. He was so understanding of the fact that I had this operation and got a stent. All he said was that the decision was ultimately patient's, that they as doctors can NOT tell what to do, or not to do.

This time I was with him longer than my usual 10-15 minutes. I guess he wanted to get something off his chest, because he talked about how the media was creating a rift between patients and the doctors and how, as a result of this, patients were trying to hide the fact that they already had the procedure. He just said that this was ridiculous, and commanded me for being straightforward.

I am really looking forward to the outcome of this.

WOW! No slides... closed doors. This doesn't sound like actions of an organization that is funded by charitable donations. As someone who has personally raised thousands of dollars to pay the salaries of MS Society staff, I would prefer that meetings were not held behind closed doors.

Lets hope that they will have an open-minded attitude. I don't know Dr. Rubin, but I am hopeful when it comes to Dr. Selchen.

Why no slides?
Interventional radiology is very much about the seeing.
Might as well wear a blindfold and earplugs....

Not sure why the closed door with no images but, as long as there are no waivers or gag orders to be signed and because they've invited two of CCSVI's biggest, most vocal and most progressive hitters.. I'm hopeful. :)

June 17th ...... plenty of time for angry MS'ers to turn up the volume and demand an open door policy ...... and allow the presenters to provide visual aids .... as we know ..... " a picture is worth a thousand words "

and Dr . Sclafani ...... you are " A Number 1 ... Top of the heap " :wink:

Agreed! I'll send another e-mail to Yves Savoie--although he has ignored my other ones.

Like Cece, I wonder why no slides, etc. How can they learn without seeing? Or, maybe they don't want to learn?!?

As a 26 year member of MSSC, I would like to see videos of the presentation. I'll ask Yves to post it on line or provide a copy to me and other members who are interested.

Does anyone know if the media will be able to attend? If it's closed door, probably not. But, I hope they will interview Dr. S and Dr. H when they are here.
