Upcoming Support Groups Meetings Promise Big Changes

Little things make a big difference...

Princeton Area Support Group Meets Saturday, September 1st at 1pm at Princeton Community Hospital, Education Classrooms 1 & 2

Since this meeting falls on a National Holiday Weekend, we are going to try a first. Those who show up for the meeting this Saturday at PCH will have the opportunity to win their very own DVD copy of the first feature film ever produced about fibromyalgia, Living With Fibromyalgia... a Journey of Hope and Understanding. Whoever attends and brings a guest who has never attended any of our meetings or events before will be eligible to win the movie and their guest will also win the DVD, if selected in the drawing. Plus, if you bring more than one guest as defined above, you will receive a drawing entry for each newbie. You can have multiple opportunities to win. This is a great prize and hopefully will provide a little incentive to attend our support group. Additionally, we will have complimentary refreshments...another first!

Our featured presentation comes from the NFA Fame Conference with Dr. Harvey Moldolfsky. Dr. Moldofsky was formerly Professor of Psychiatry and Medicine and now is Professor Emeritus of the Faculty of Medicine and Member Emeritus, Institute of Medical Science, School of Graduate Studies at the University of Toronto. Currently, he is President and Medical Director of the Sleep Disorders Clinic of the Center for Sleep and Chronobiology in Toronto. He is considered by many medical professionals as the modern "father of sleep medicine". We cannot stress enough the importance of sleep in the management of fibromyalgia. Come learn with us how to improve our sleep and reduce our pain.

Who wouldn't want to spend an hour or two learning more about ways to better manage their pain and live a happier life while earning a great prize just by showing up with a new guest(s) and sampling yummy free treats for everyone? And, I didn't even mention having the privilege of meeting and sharing with others (really nice folks) who can appreciate what you're going through every day living with fibromyalgia. See you there!

Beckley Area Support Group Meets Saturday, September 8 at 1pm at Raleigh General Hospital, Education Center (New facility just opened behind former Education Center building)

The Charleston Area Medical Center & WVU School of Medicine Fibromyalgia Seminar will be shown via DVD. It features presentations and a Q & A session where Drs. Pfister and Linton lecture and then interact with the participants. Many who have viewed the seminar have found it to be very helpful in providing straightforward answers to their questions about fibromyalgia and how to effectively manage the syndrome. Very popular...Don't miss it!
