LONG BRANCH, NJ – Monmouth Medical Center in collaboration with the National Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Association (NJCFSA) is hosting the NJCFSA 2012 Fall Conference on Sunday, October 21 from 11:30 a.m. 5 p.m. at Sheraton Hotel Conference Center, located at 6 Industrial Way West in Eatontown. Designed for the medical community as well as chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia patients and families, the conference will focus on progress in research, diagnosis and treatment of the illnesses.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, also known as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), is a serious, often disabling illness that attacks all body systems. More than one million American men, women and children suffer from ME/CFS. As yet, there is no cure, and treatment is aimed at symptom relief. However, promising multidisciplinary, multi‐national research and new technologies are advancing treatment protocols for ME/CFS patients worldwide.
The event will feature compelling topics by experts like “ME/CFS Diagnosis and Treatment: Signs of Progress and Reasons for Optimism,” and “Evaluating the Brain Effects of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in Children, Adolescents and Adults,” as well as a question and answer session.
Registration and buffet lunch begins at 11:30 a.m. followed by the program at 12:30 p.m.
To register, call 1-888-835-3677. Cost is $40 per person by October 9 or $45 per person at door.
