Public lecture by Dr Alastair Miller, 5th May. 'Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/ Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: Not Just Tired All The Time!'

Just letting you all know about this lecture coming up in Gresham College, London in May, it's 1pm so probably a bit early for me, but hoping it'll be recorded and posted online.

Here's the link for anyone who is interested:

  • Noticed the same venue would be hosting Professor Julia Newton on 26th May.

    Sharing the hope of online publishing of the lectures content. Will any students from Kings College London broaden their understanding by attending one wonders.

  • My brother regularly attends public lectures here and they are usually recorded and posted online in an audio format - so I think it's a pretty safe bet. I'll ask him to keep an eye out for the Julia Newton lecture too.

    I'm supposed to be going to visit him and go to this lecture, but I'm very worried about crossing London at my slow time of day... My priority is visiting the Small Worlds exhibition at the V&A which I can do in an afternoon (when my body works best). They have wheelchairs too, so I wont be time limited - I can't stand up for long.

  • Wheelchair access into the lecture had me looking at google street view, though the journey there would also worry me. Catching up with the news later as Invest in ME are having a conference at Bird Cage Walk on the 29th of May it looks a busy time.
