Thanks, Sharon! Great news. Pretty sure it's just for docs, not patients. I'd suggest folks let their doctors know about this conference, and have them contact Dr. Haacke if they are interested in learning more about CCSVI.

I wonder if this is a public event or something for medical professionals only? Can't wait to hear more details as it approaches.

eta: posted at the same time as cheer. It would be a shame if it is for docs only. I'm not far from there and would've loved to go. But as soon as I saw 'workshop' I kinda figured it was for medical professionals only. Hopefully they're able to get a lot accomplished.

This is not open to the public, it is for medical professionals only. My NYC IR is going/speaking, by invite from Haake.

I wonder if he is coming back for the huge neuro conference April 10 in Toronto. Supposedly the Buffalo study is to be presented at it, but then again the results of the study were to be released in November.

Okay Everyone - I know it is hard to sit back and wait but the website said
More details will appear as this event develops. Dr. Zamboni and several of his colleagues are planning to come and Dr. Zivadinov and Dr. Dake have both been invited as well. Stay tuned for more details.


It sounds to me like the event is still in the planning stages.

I see my new MS specialist at U of M medical center tomorrow. I am going to present CCSVI to him and tell him that he could be a real pioneer for research on this if he goes to the event. Where is Hamilton? Where is McMaster university?

Media Letter

Postby Bobbi » Fri Jan 15, 2010 1:27 pm

This is an email that I will be sending out to some local newspapers

Research into Blood Flow in the Brain and Venous Insufficiency, or CCSVI, in Multiple Sclerosis is a new and potentially interesting area in MS research. Experts in this field will be travelling to Canada in early February to meet with Dr. Haacke to learn more about this new research and procedure. It is my assumption that this workshop is for Physicians. More details will become available on Dr. Haacke’s website.

It would be to your advantage to anticipate covering this event in your newspaper. Ontario has a large population of MS patients along with a world-wide audience in anticipation of hearing news on this ground breaking research.
This email will be sent to the following Ontario newspapers with hopes that there will be local coverage of this story.

Toronto Star city@thestar.ca
The Hamilton Spectator cammerata@thespec.com
The St. Catharines Standard akriluck@stcatharinesstandard.ca

Please pass on the information to the appropriate reporting department.
In anticipation of your interest in this event, thank you.
Sincerely,
Phyllis Reakes
St.Catharines, Ontario
