Hi Aaron...was not sure how to get this info to you other then to just copy and paste the actual post to our group right here. I sure do hope that there is a big turnout for this. I for one will be attending. I already sent back my reply. They really would like to know if there is enough interest or I'm afraid that whole thing might get scrapped. Anyway I guess they really need to get a handle on who might be interested?? Ok..here's the info. If you want to dissect it to make it into an official notice and scrap my message altogether, please feel free. Whatever gets this thing going strong, I am all for it. All anyone needs to do is to copy and paste the survey about the dates and reply to the webmaster. Oh boy..the link to the return add is not appearing..not quite sure what that addy is in total...shoot...anyone know it? Probably firstname.lastname@example.org
. I will find out for sure and let you know.

** Please see below for your LDN-Yahoo Group Members' Survey and

Plans are being laid for the First Annual LDN Conference, to be held
in New York City at the New York Academy of Sciences (NYAS) in
Manhattan. The dates being considered for this all-day meeting are
Saturday December 4th or Saturday December 11th. Below please find
your copy of a poll of all members of the LDN-Yahoo Group.
We are very much hoping that you will plan on attending and, if so,
that you will reply to the Website Editor at
email@l.... (** Please do NOT reply to the LDN-Yahoo
Group by pressing Reply to this email. **)
The theme of the conference will be "Achieving a Clinical Trial for
Low Dose Naltrexone". Bernard Bihari, MD, the discoverer of the
clinical effects of low dose naltrexone, will be the keynote speaker.
Dr. Bihari will cover a number of topics of interest, including recent
developments within his practice, and will answer questions from the
attendees. It is hoped that a panel of disinterested physicians, who
have been prescribing LDN for their patients, as well as a panel of
actively involved LDN-Yahoo Group members, will also be on the agenda.
Planned opportunities for interaction include large group discussions,
Q&A following each talk, and break-out groups.
The NYAS indicates that the main floor conference room and restroom
are wheelchair accessible. A modest registration fee (under $50) will
be requested in order to defray the facility's charges.
A few of the many goals of the all-day meeting will be:
* Update participants on news regarding LDN and possible clinical
trials of LDN.
* Draw attention to the urgent need to recognize LDN as a potential
treatment against the AIDS pandemic.
* Draw the attention of the media and encourage them to cover LDN in
newspapers, TV, radio etc.
* Bring together the community of doctors and patients prescribing and
using LDN —to strengthen the sense of community and empowerment.
* Join together through brainstorming and networking in order to
forward efforts being made toward a clinical trial.
