My presentation in Campbellton went well despite my rusty French. The room was packed (over 80 people) and they were a great audience: very attentive and respectful. There were good questions and ideas from the audience after the presentation, and then Louis (who had just returned from his CCSVI diagnosis in Barrie and is on the cusp of making a decision to go to Poland) also gave a good extemporare talk on his own situation. Congratulations to the organizers - a lot of MSers are now better informed.
One thing I should have talked about (though it came out a bit in the discussions) is the importance of working together as a group to put pressure on the political and medical systems to make sure CCSVI diagnosis and (if appropriate) treatment is available to all Canadians in Canada. We need teams of medical professionals - GPs, vascular specialists, interventional radiologists AND neurologists - working together to combat MS.
