    Making sense of chronic fatigue
    Nationally known CFS clinician, Dr. Lucinda Bateman, will be the featured speaker at this seminar. Throughout her medical career, her interest has gradually become more focused on the diagnosis and management of chronic fatigue syndrome, inspired in part by the silent suffering of her sister, Shauna Bateman Horne, who had chronic fatigue syndrome for 15 years before she was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma in 2000 and died from complications of a stem cell transplant in May of 2001.

    In 2000, Dr. Bateman opened her fatigue consultation clinic and has since evaluated more than 700 patients with chronic fatigue. She has given more than 30 lectures on issues relating to chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia.

    Dr. Bateman's goal in establishing her fatigue consultation clinic and the non-profit organization, OFFER (Organization for Fatigue and Fibromyalgia Education and Research), is to encourage more of a thoughtful evaluation process, sharing of information and guidance with patients and their primary care management team, and joint research efforts aimed at understanding the cause(s) of CFS and FMS.

    Patients, caregivers and health care professionals are invited to attend. For more information, including registration details, contact the Wisconsin CFS Association.

    Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Fibromyalgia and other Related Illnesses

    This four-day scientific medical conference, designed to benefit both the healthcare professional (researcher & clinician) and the patient community, will offer dedicated segments for both. Sessions will focus on integrative themes including different aspects of chronic fatigue syndrome, Fibromyalgia and other related illnesses presented in the context of fatigue, pain, sleep, pediatrics, cognition & brain function.

A cocktail reception and awards banquet, available to all attendees, will recognize top researchers and clinicians in our field and offer attendees an informal networking opportunity.

    This conference will combine clinical and research sessions, bringing together researchers and clinicians in a joint educational effort.

    I don't know of any off hand, and I just cannot search at this time, with my health just getting worst and so many things going on. I'm by myself and so depressed trying to get by each day until I am able to fly home to Boston. All my family and friends are there. I have no one in stinky Florida.
