The Danish physician, Per Fink, is traveling to the United States to speak about his unscientific and dangerous idea that myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) is a psychosomatic illness. Per Fink has been invited to speak at a psychosomatic conference at Columbia University in New York City on Saturday, Oct. 20th. Columbia University will reward medical providers who come to hear Per Fink speak with Continuing Education credits.
We cannot let Per Fink influence medical providers in the U.S. with his gaslighting and abusive methodology towards people with ME. Here are three things you can do to take action:
- Call & email these three people who are involved with Columbia’s Psychosomatics Conference
- Join or share this in-person protest event
- Sign the petition to Columbia University
You can read more information about Per Fink here. You can read more about Karina Hansen’s recent court victory here. Karina is a Danish person with ME who was forcibly removed from her home and institutionalized against her will as a psychiatric patient under Per Fink’s care.
