LDN Conference Planning Team
The First Annual Low Dose Naltrexone Conference
at The New York Academy of Sciences
Saturday, June 11, 2005
For those planning to attend the conference, please be aware of the following:
Brown-Bag Lunch Panel. In addition to the original planned agenda for the conference (see below for details), a panel of special guests -- including Fritz Bell, also known as “GoodShape;” Norman Brown, PhD; and Art Mellor and Rob Lester of the Accelerated Cure Project for Multiple Sclerosis (also known as the Boston Cure Project) -- have been invited to speak at a special “Brown-Bag Lunch Panel.” Those wishing to attend this portion of the conference are encouraged to bring their own lunch, as lunch will not be served during the conference, and there will not be sufficient time in which to leave and return to enjoy this segment of the meeting.
Sign-in at 8:30AM. Those attending the conference must arrive between 8:30 & 9:00am in order to sign-in and receive the conference materials. A light breakfast (bagels, juice, and coffee) will be served beginning at 8:30am.
Paying at the Door. If you have not yet registered or paid, you may do so at the door. However, the $50 admission fee will be accepted in cash (US dollars) only.
Getting There. The New York Academy of Sciences is located at 2 East 63rd Street between Madison and 5th Avenues in Manhattan. Please be aware that their street address (2) is not clearly marked—look for double doors with "New York Academy of Sciences" engraved in stone above. For directions, see http://www.nyas.org/about/directions.asp
Friends, Family, & Others. If you have registered friends, family, or others for the conference, please make sure they are made aware of all the information above.
