AAN 2008 roundup?

In the previous years Art Mellor always had a roundup of the AAN conference on his accellerated cure website.
This year it does not seem as if he had attended the AAN 2008.

Is there an other source for a roundup of AAN 2008?

By the way, last year there was a conference at Harvard Medical School and the lectures where online as audio documents.
Has a similar conference of HMS been done in 2008? ...

Hormones, HPG axis- For Sharon

Hi Sharon,

Wanted your wisdom and input....

We had my husband do a saliva hormone test, recommended by a holistic doc who is a good friend. Jeff has been taking DHEA supplements (50mg) daily, so his DHEA was slightly elevated, but what really surprised my friend were his levels of lutenizing hormone and follicle stimulating hormone...off the charts.
