CCSVI Expo with Dr. Zamboni, Joan Beal, Dr. Sclafani & more!

Postby happy_canuck » Wed Nov 16, 2011 4:03 pm

Just 4 days left until our CCSVI 36 hour Expo begins! We start broadcasting at 10 AM (PST) on Sunday, November 20 and don't stop until 10 PM Monday November 21.

This 36 hour Internet marathon features up to 20 of the leading CCSVI rsearchers and doctors, including Dr. Paolo Zamboni. Dr. Sclafani, who first introduced himself here on TIMS, will be one of our first speakers.

To watch this live event, all you need is your computer and your speakers turned on. It's free and sponsored by the National CCSVI Society.

To get a full speaker schedule emailed to you and the connection instructions for when the Expo begins, go to the National CCSVI website and register.

If you have any questions, PM me (Sandra Birrell) -- I'm organizing the Expo!

Thanks,

~Sandra

Hello,

Waiting for sunday and broadcasting eagerly. I registered myself and got "ticket" in my email.. but not list of speakers or instructions to watch live. Do I need any specific instructions or is it just so simple, that I go to webpage and see the show? :)

I am working to get a full speaker schedule out later today (Friday) or early Saturday. The connection link and sign on instructions for participants will also go out Saturday.

We have been working to resolve some technical issues first, but I think we have everything now good-to-go.

Fingers crossed!!

Cece,

Even Cisco (who we paid to broadcast the Expo) said they had never done anything like this and are very interested. So, we need to keep our sense of humour if technology gremklins invade the broadcast. But we are very, very optimistic we can do it. My fingers and toes are crossed.

Just make sure you're registered and you'll get a full schedule and, importantly, the link to access the Expo and chat. We can't post the links everywhere (we will let the social media family do that for us) because we are going to busy the moment we find out exactly what link to provide. That's why we had people register -- Eventbrite allows us to send an email with a single push of a button to all people registered.

See you online!

Oh that's early but he's a great speaker. I've seen his presentation from the NY symposium.
Much applause to all the speakers for participating in this and Sandra and everyone involved with putting this on!! It's packed right from the beginning. Dr. Sclafani leading things off! Dr. Zamboni himself at 11:45 am! Dr. Dake, Dr. McGuckin, Kirsty Duncan, Dr. Diana Driscoll ... it just keeps going.

Here's wishes for smooth sailing with any gremlins either asleep or too interested in the programming itself to dare interfering.

The Expo is still ongoing through 10 pm PST tonight. Dr. Siskin is speaking right now. Very informative!

They are also doing a raffle. For every $5 donated, you get a chance to get Dr. Zamboni's scarf that he wore in the original CTV show. Oh wow. I will be putting an entry in but I expect the odds will not be with me. That scarf would have pride of place up on my mantle! What a piece of CCSVI history.

edited to add:

This is something that is already on my mantle. I bought this little boat at the south street seashore in Manhattan, when I was in NY for my procedure in Brooklyn with Dr. Sclafani. It represents the CCSVI journey we are all on. The newspaper hull reminded me of all of us here at TiMS.
