First Annual LDN Conference Planned

Possible Early December 2004 Meeting At The New York Academy of
Sciences

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

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@lowdosenaltrexone.org

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.

LDN Conference postponed...

Postby JoyceF » Thu Sep 16, 2004 4:34 am

Just wanted you all to know that we just received notice from the LDN yahoo group webmaster that the LDN Conference has been postponed until the spring of 2005. I can only guess that they did not get a big enough response. Let's all hope that things happen in the spring.
