Lobby Day
On Sunday evening, Dysautonomia International will provide a briefing on the issues we will be speaking with our government official about, and an advocacy training session on how to make the best of your lobbying experience. Monday morning, we will take charter buses to Capitol Hill. We will split into smaller groups to attend meetings with multiple congressional offices. We will return back to the hotel as a group to to de-brief on our meetings. After brief closing remarks we will conclude the conference by early afternoon.
'Secondary autonomic dysfunction' would be us, with autonomic nervous system dysfunction caused by the CCSVI or the MS. I didn't know I had it until I had the autonomic improvements after the venoplasty.

this is new and it is from dr arata i bet...
i believe, in order to stay out of harms way from neuros etc. he went one step back to move forward.

for us? i'm not sure, but it could just be my skepticism...certainly worth watching.
