IRISH ME/CFS ASSOCIATION MAY MEETING
The Irish ME/CFS Association is pleased to announce that it has arranged for Dr Ros Vallings, a leading international ME expert from New Zealand, to give 5 Irish ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome talks this May. The talks will include questions-and-answers sessions. Dr. Vallings will give talks in Cork (May 17), Limerick (May 20), Galway (May 21), Sligo (May 23) & Dublin (May 26).
Admission is E5, on the door, to help towards the costs of organising these five meetings, and Dr. Vallings' trip.
