Documentary & Discussion - Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME
Please join us for a screening of the award winning documentary Unrest, to be followed by a discussion.
'The treatment of today's ME/CFS patients is comparable to that of lobotomy patients decades ago. When the full history of ME/CFS is written one day, we will all be ashamed of ourselves.'
-Prof. Dr. Ola Didrik Saugstad, Professor of Pediatrics, WHO
Twenty-eight year-old Jennifer Brea is working on her PhD at Harvard and months away from marrying the love of her life when she gets a mysterious fever that leaves her bedridden and looking for answers. Disbelieved by doctors yet determined to live, she turns her camera on herself and discovers a hidden world of millions confined to their homes and bedrooms by ME, commonly known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
Join us for a documentary and discussion on Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, to shed light on the realities of living with ME/CFS and create a space to engage in important conversations about the impact of any major chronic illness on patients and caregivers.
