Post-viral ME/CFS Clinical Seminar
AUGUST 29, 2020 @ 03:00 PM - 04:30 PM PDT
"...a considerable number of individuals who have a post-viral syndrome that... can incapacitate them for weeks and weeks following so-called recovery.... They have [symptoms] that are highly suggestive of myalgic encephalitis and chronic fatigue syndrome -- brain fog, fatigue, difficulty in concentrating -- so this is something we really need to seriously look at."

Our featured speakers are Dr. Lucinda Bateman, MD, co-author of ME/CFS diagnostic criteria for adults and founder and Director of the Bateman Horne Center; Dr. Katherine Rowe, MD, the lead researcher and clinician on the Pediatric Primer; and Dr. Mark VanNess, PhD from the Workwell group, the United States’ preeminent research and clinical group on exercise science in ME. Dir. Jaime Seltzer, MS, our Director of Scientific and Medical Outreach, will moderate.
Because ME/CFS is an underserved area of medicine, our expert clinicians have seen thousands of cases of ME/CFS, participated as the consulting clinician on dozens of research projects, and given talks at medical and research conferences. Many have helped develop diagnostic criteria for the disease or produced standardized tools to measure ME symptoms. The opportunity to learn from experts of this caliber is rare, and the opportunity to learn about ME/CFS in the wake of COVID-19 is wholly unique.
Not all COVID “long haulers” will fit ME/CFS diagnostic criteria. However, it is vital that clinicians who treat and study long-haulers know to make ME/CFS part of their differential diagnosis, and have access to modern diagnostic criteria and management advice.
