Hi Effie, How about starting a new thread, not to say that you can't post on here, but I don't think you are the only Aussie here and it might catch the eye of other Oz people. It is difficult to get things started on your own, not impossible as Cheerleader has proven, because she started the ball rolling on her own, but easier.
Things that we have done in the UK:
written to the MS societies
started a petition to the prime minister
written to medical universities and researchers forwarding Prof Zamboni's papers
written in MS magazines
been in touch with doppler equipment manufacturers
been in touch with private vascular specialists.
passed on information to our doctors
posted on our facebook profiles, your could try using the OZ MS facebook forum: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=85614993047
What we have not done yet but hope to achieve in the near future is
Create a pressure group
Interest major newspapers in the story
Create a UK website for information and lobbying.
