    No, too far away for me, but did you go? Can you give us a few highlights?

    No, I was just hoping to get the word out. Would have loved to go myself but not well enough to travel that far and for that long.
    I hope it was well-attended.

    Just read an exciting email from #MEAction.net this is just part of it:
    "Let's mobilize medical providers across the country to watch Unrest for credit!


    We are so thrilled to announce that US healthcare providers – including doctors, nurses, pharmacists, therapists and social workers – can now watch Unrest and receive continuing education credits through the American Medical Women’s Association and Indiana University School of Medicine, in partnership with #MEAction.

    Healthcare providers can attend a live, continuing education event screening of Unrest – at a theater, hospital, university, clinic or community center - or register to watch Unrest online; watch a 10-minute video on the diagnosis & management of ME by Dr. David Kaufman; take a short test; and receive 2.0 American Medical Association PRA Category 1 Credits™.

    We are so excited to offer this new way to use Unrest as a tool to educate even more doctors and healthcare providers, and continue to raise awareness about the realities of ME. Read about our plans to disseminate this new education module and learn about how you can help us get the word out!
