Leading the Way 2014, Saskatoon, Canada
Australia was represented at the conference by researcher, Dr Helen Kavnoudias from the Alfred Hospital and Kerri Cassidy from CCSVI Australia.
Research into the importance of vascular and cerebrospinal fluid flow in neurological disease was the focus. Doctors and researchers from various disciplines came together with patients, government representatives and clinicians. Science is important however it must be married with the experiences and stories of the people it affects – this will take the research forward.
Sincere thanks to the organisers, The Canadian Society of Neurovascular Health and the people of Canada who warmly welcomed a couple of travellers from Down Under.
Kerri and Helen also met with CCSVI Alliance Vice President, Joan Beal in Los Angeles. We value the relationship with our international partners and look forward to continuing the work together.
Kerri has shared a video update from her trip:
