For ME/CFS Awareness Day, we have posted the first of a three-part video interview with Dr. Eleanor Stein of Calgary, Canada. Dr. Stein has been a positive and powerful force in the struggle for greater understanding of this biological illness, improved education of healthcare professionals, and support for patients and their familes.
She is the founder of the ETeam, the only multidisciplinary team in Canada offering objective assessment of cognitive and sensory function in people with ME/CFS, FM, MCS or a history of toxic exposure. Dr. Stein has been involved in a number of research projects on the autonomic nervous system, exercise capacity, and infection in ME/CFS.
To acknowledge ME Awareness Month (as promoted in some countries), we will post the remaining two parts of this video over the next couple of weeks.
Here is Part 1, approximately 15 minutes in length: http://youtu.be/b4YrpXvavWc
