Mark your calendars to join us next October 27-30, 2016 for our 12th International Research and Clinical Conference to be held in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA at the Westin Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort.  We anticipate an exciting, informative program including our signature opening day workshops for clinicians and our unique lecture series tailored for patients and their supporters. Days 2-4 will include poster sessions, oral presentations, networking events, and a gala reception and dinner on Saturday.  The Institute for Neuro Immune Medicine at Nova Southeastern University, based in Fort Lauderdale, will also be hosting a special pre-conference day of talks on October 26.

Our conferences are attended by hundreds of scientists, physicians, other professionals, and patients interested in chronic fatigue syndrome/ myalgic encephalomyelitis, fibromyalgia, and co-morbid illnesses (e.g. orthostatic intolerance, insomnia, irritable bowel syndrome, hypothyrodisim) as well as other medical conditions/ circumstances (e.g. cancer, multiple sclerosis, rheumatologic diseases, aging, overwork) associated with acute or chronic fatigue.  Attendees come from all over the United States and over 25 countries.

About Fort Lauderdale: 
“Fort Lauderdale is famous for its beaches, arts, culture and events. From shopping on Las Olas Boulevard, to gondola rides on the canals, to a historic riverfront. Just two miles north of Port Everglades, you can experience a landscaped beachfront promenade, with its signature white wave wall and brick paved path. Across the street, visit luxury hotels, and enjoy shopping or dining or a narrated  water taxi tour of quaint Las Olas Boulevard, historical districts, and the mansions and yachts dotting Millionaires Row. Stop at the Stranahan House, a preserved 1900s home furnished with antiques of the era. Or "follow the red brick road" of Riverwalk, the landscaped park, to the Arts and Entertainment District. Trying to stay fit? Dive into the Atlantic, hike into the Everglades or enjoy a workout and healthy fare at a resort spa.”
