Physics Girl Livestream to raise awareness and money for ME/CFS and LC with notes


New Member
Dianna Cowern aka Physics Girl has been disabled with Long COVID and ME/CFS for years now. She held a live stream yesterday to raise awareness for the conditions and money for Open Medicine Foundation. During the livestream Dianna was shown doing her routines all from her bed from 6:30 AM to 6:00 PM. Her husband and full time caregiver Kyle hosted the event with other people. They originally had the goal of raising $10,000 and that was surpassed easily within the first 30 minutes of the stream. They raised the goal to $100,000 and surpassed that as well. They are still taking donations on the livestream link and also directly through OMF for over 20 days. Kyle mentioned Health Rising as a helpful resource multiple times during the event. They did a fantastic job and I would highly suggest watching the videos especially the talks if you are able.

8:30 AM PST - Dr. David Kaufman, an ME/CFS specialist. Interviewed by Vanessa Hill from BrainCraft.
11:00 AM - Dr. Raven Baxter, a science communicator. Interviewed by Kyle Kitzmiller.
1:30 AM - Linda Tannenbaum, founder of the Open Medicine Foundation. Interviewed by Derek Muller from Veritasium.
3:30 PM - Dr. David Putrino, director of CoRE Center for Complex Illnesses. Interviewed by Kyle Kitzmiller.

Having ME/CFS myself I realized that many people would be unable to watch the live stream so I took notes and gave live updates in a couple of ME/CFS Discord communities. I've gone ahead and compiled those notes for others. Please note I don't have the capacity/ability to transcribe word for word so they are all a summary. When I first started taking notes I didn't know that I would be sharing these widely so the notes on the earlier interviews aren't as robust. I will likely go back and watch those talks again and expand them when I'm able.
