A Patient Conference for Dr. Nancy Klimas was hosted by Nova Southeastern University on January 26, 2013. I was delighted to see Vonnie Kennedy’s article A Celebration of Hope and Progress with her first-hand view of the morning sessions.

Last week a notice from the University of Miami stating that after 27 years Dr. Klimas’s doors at the University would close sent something of a shock wave through the ME/CFS community. The idea that a significant CFS researcher, physician and advocate had perhaps lost her academic base was more than disturbing – but that announcement turned out to be nothing but a prelude to the really big news; it turned out that University of Miami didn’t let her go at all – Dr. Klimas left them for greener, much greener pastures.
