Invest in ME Research International ME Conference 2007

IIMEC2 - Building a Future for Research into ME

The charity's International ME Conference for 2007- #IIMEC2 - was our second annual international conference for ME and was held on over two days - 1st and 2nd May, 2007 in London and began ME Awareness Month 2007.
The conference was attended by presenters and delegates from 12 countries, from Europe, USA, Canada and even South Korea.

The charity decided to make this a two-day conference - with themes for professionals on one day and patients on the second day.
This also allowed increased networking opportunities and potential for one of the charity's main objectives - international collaboration between researchers.

The conference carried full CPD-accreditation.

1st May - ME Awareness & Support Conference Day - consisted of a series of group presentations and was designed for healthcare professionals, people with ME and their carers and ME Support groups with a view to working together.

2nd May - Professionals Conference Day - was the formal presentation day for healthcare professionals - doctors, paediatricians, nurses, researchers, students etc. as well as people with ME and their carers and ME support groups.

The conference aimed to educate and provide current information to healthcare professionals (GPs, paediatricians, nurses) and researchers and to educate the media and politicians involved in establishing news or debate regarding healthcare.

The series of lectures focused on treatments, care and medical information and research and provided a broad range of valuable information for all.

The conference provided a chance to hear the latest news on ME from the most prominent speakers within the ME community - in ME Awareness Month 2007.

Good and useful connections were made - researchers discussing collaboration; ME Support groups discussing joint ventures and campaigns; carers and parents sharing experiences.

A wonderful atmosphere was present during both days of the conference and many travelled from afar.

The charity published its first Journal of IiME, which also served as a conference brochure, and produced a DVD of the conference (though later the videos of the presentations have been made available here online).
