US Expert to give UK Lecture

FibroActionAmerican rheumatologist and Fibromyalgia expert Andrew Holman MD will be giving a lecture on Fibromyalgia on Monday 22nd December, as part of a short visit to the UK.

The lecture title is: 'Fibromyalgia in 2009: What It Is. What It Isn't. And What To Do About It.'.

The lecture will be at Guy’s Hospital, London, from 7pm to 8.30pm, and is being hosted by Professor John Davies, who leads the Fibromyalgia clinic at Guy's Hospital. The lecture is being organised by FibroAction in conjunction with Professor Davies and the clinic at Guy's Hospital.

This event is open to all, but is designed to be useful for healthcare professionals and CPD accreditation approval is being sought from the Royal College of Physicians. Patients are encouraged to pass details of the event on to any doctors they know of with an interest in Fibro.

This Christmas lecture presents a rare opportunity to hear and ask questions of a Fibro expert who is leading the way into new avenues of knowledge and treatment. You may remember Dr Holman from the excellent DVD, ‘Fibromyalgia: Show Me Where It Hurts’ (copies are available from the Fibromyalgia Support group for Surrey & Sussex). Dr Holman holds three concurrent positions as Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of Washington; President and Clinical Rheumatologist at Pacific Rheumatology Associates and Pacific Rheumatology Research, Inc.; and Chief Scientific Officer at Inmedix, LLC.

He has participated in numerous pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic trials studying the role of the autonomic nervous system in Fibromyalgia and other conditions, and was instrumental in the initial discovery and further development of treatment of Fibromyalgia using dopamine agonists. After 15 years of clinical practice focusing on Fibromyalgia and Rheumatoid Arthritis, Dr Holman currently maintains a research practice to develop new diagnostic and treatment modalities. Recent research has included evaluating a new type of pain related to intermittent, positional cervical spinal cord compression commonly found among patients with Fibromyalgia .

Discounted rates are available for medical students, nurses, physiotherapists and other healthcare professionals, with further discounts for non-healthcare professionals.

Guy’s Hospital is conveniently located in central London, immediately adjacent to London Bridge Station. Why not combine the lecture with a trip to London for Christmas shopping and to see the lights?

There are limited tickets available for the event and a registration form can be downloaded from the FibroAction website. See www.fibroaction.org or call 01635 529676.
