Firstly, we wish to thank our sponsor of this event: The National ME/FM Action Network.
Secondly, we wish to thank the organizer and moderator of the event, Dr. Eleanor Stein.
In this section of the presentations, Dr. Stein introduces what will happen during the event. (for those watching these recordings, you can fast forward through the bits where she explains how to submit questions).
Dr. Stein wants to thank the sponsor the National ME/FM Action Network and, Michael Finch for his IT wizardy, and all of the speakers for so generously giving of their time.
Dr. Stein is a psychiatrist in private practice in Calgary, Alberta. She specializes in helping people with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. She offers medical diagnosis and treatment as well as individual and group psychotherapy for people with ME/CFS, FM and MCS.
Dr. Stein is the founder of the ETeam, the only multidisciplinary team in Canada offering objective assessment of cognitive, exercise and sensory function in people with ME/CFS, FM, MCS or a history of toxic exposure.
She has been involved in a number of research projects on the autonomic nervous system, exercise capacity and infection in ME/CFS. Her career objective is that every patient in Canada with ME/CFS, FM and MCS will have access to timely, accurate diagnosis and compassionate, evidence based treatment within the Canadian publicly funded health care system.
Each year for the past 4 years she has organized an education session such as this one on June 16th on various topics to do with ME/CFS and MCS. The events are roughly timed each year with the National Awareness Week for ME/CFS and MCS.

I am a psychiatrist with a small private practice in Calgary and am an assistant clinical professor in the faculty of medicine at the University of Calgary. Since 2000, I have worked with over 1000 patients, all with ME/CFS, FM and ES. My passion for this field comes from my own struggle with these diseases, my desire to improve my health and then pass on what I learn. My goal is for every patient in Canada to have access to respectful, effective health care within the publicly funded system.
