  • 2006 Rare Neuroimmunologic Disorders Symposium

    http://www.myelitis.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=1312

    It's that time again! If you have TM, Devics, ADEM, MS, optic neuritis or even, ahem, a spinal infarct this symposium sponsored by Johns Hopkins University is not to be missed. Bring your doctor as CMEs are awarded (updates their medical knowledge credits). Definetely bring the spouse or kid or parent that needs to understand why no other doc understands what is going on with you.

    And it is a wonderful time to meet people who actually DO know how you feel. I'll be there! And there are chepaer places to stay as the place is near light rail. Just the hotel deal does include many meals and you'll love the Inner Harbor.

    I live just south of Baltimore so feel free to ask questions here or at the TMA site as they have already staged 2 in Baltimore and many members attend.

    The final agendas are in and I'll be attending the clinical side of the symposium. Anyone else going? Dr Douglas Kerr will be there to speak about clinical trials for the non-traumatic injuries among us.

        Remember that the hotel is near the Camden Yards light rail station if you want to stay at a different, cheaper hotel. But being near the Inner Harbor is great if you bring kids. Water Taxis, The Science Center, IMAX Theater and Kid Factory all right there. And a safe area day and night.

              Ditto! For those with some of the rarer conditions the research side may help you with questions to ask your neurologist or physiatrist that remain unanswered here.

              And yes, that really is a much more debonior looking Sandy Siegel up there speaking.

              Again, thanks Jim for the work putting everything together in the new format.
