Join us for our March webinar
"Going With the Flow -- Blood Flow, That Is"
Please join us for our third 2010 Webinar!
Thursday, March 18, 2010
12:00 p.m. (Eastern) - 1:00 p.m.
Guest Speaker: Marvin Medow, PhD, New York Medical College
It has long been established that many people with CFS experience symptoms like light-headedness associated with upright posture, broadly called orthostatic intolerance. Is it possible that these symptoms could be connected to impaired blood flow, ultimately reducing the amount of blood that flows to the brain? That's what researcher Marvin Medow, PhD, and his team at New York Medical College are investigating with their grant from the CFIDS Association of America.
Dr. Medow is a physiologist and associate director of the Center for Hypotension at New York Medical College, where he works with Julian Stewart, MD, a longtime CFS researcher.
At this webinar, Dr. Medow will describe his study and the techniques his team uses to measure blood flow and chemical changes that may explain many of the symptoms experienced by CFS patients. You'll learn more about orthostatic intolerance, tilt table testing, transcranial Doppler and microdialysis. Suzanne D. Vernon, PhD, scientific director of the CFIDS Association of America, will moderate the program.
This program is the third in the CFIDS Association's 2010 webinar series. To learn more about webinars in general, please visit http://www.cfids.org/webinar/what-is-a-webinar.asp. Past Association webinars are described and archived at http://www.cfids.org/webinar/series2010.asp.
