Featuring Dr. Anthony L. Komaroff
Saturday, October 22, 2022
1:00 - 3:00 P.M. ET on Zoom
Dr. Komaroff will talk about “The Emerging Parallels Between ME/CFS and Long COVID”. He will describe not only how the symptoms are similar but also how the two conditions share many of the same physiologic abnormalities and the opportunity Long Covid provides to advance our understanding of ME/CFS and to support clinical trials.

He has published over 230 research articles and two books. From 1997-2015 he was editor in chief of the Harvard Health Publications Division of Harvard Medical School, the division responsible for disseminating all of the medical school’s health information for the general public. He has been publishing research papers on myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) since the late 1980s, and currently serves on the National Institutes of Health’s advisory council for ME/CFS research.

Traditional Chinese Medicine/TCM is a rich and complex medical system originating over three thousand years ago. Its extensive history has developed intricate diagnostic systems focused on assessing the whole person. It also encompasses an in-depth theory of disease patterns and a multitude of therapies and specialties. This multifaceted system provides explanations and treatments for symptoms experienced by those with multi-systemic, invisible and post-viral illnesses within its medical theories and diagnostics.
Traditional Chinese Medicine is rooted in performing an in-depth intake of each patient which includes gathering detailed information on organ systems, physical strengths and weakness, mental and emotional health, environmental factors, and external pathogens that have influenced one's health in order to create a treatment plan that aligns with the specific needs of the individual.
