Ann W. Caldwell President's Lecture: Interprofessional Rounds

MGH Institute of Health Professions invites the public, healthcare providers, and researchers to the 2019 Ann W. Caldwell President’s Lecture: Interprofessional Rounds.

Come learn about the "millions missing," those living with the debilitating disease Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), which disables 1-2.5 million Americans.  This year’s topic is “Invisible Disability: Providing Compassionate Care for a Person with ME/CFS.” 

  • Program moderator: Ronald G Tompkins, MD, ScD, Director, MGH Center for Surgery, Innovation & Bioengineering 
  • Date: Tuesday, January 15, 5:30–7:00 p.m. (doors open 5:00 pm) 
  • Location: Northeastern University, Blackman Auditorium, 342 Huntington Ave (Ell Hall), Boston. 

Join us for an excerpt of the Sundance award-winning film "Unrest", chronicling the hidden lives of patients, followed by a discussion with an MGH researcher, a healthcare provider, and patient advocates. This program will inspire you to bring a new awareness about ME/CFS back to your clinical practice.
