Quarterly Meeting – December 14, 2014

I am absolutely thrilled to announce the details of our next meeting:

Speaker: Dr. David S. Goldstein, M.D., Ph.D.
Title: “Autonomic Function in EDS”
Sunday, December 14, 2014
Tenley-Friendship Library
Large Conference Room
1:00 – 4:00 pm

For those of you that don’t know, Dr. Goldstein was a pioneer in identifying the link between dysautonomia and EDS.  Many physicians who treat dysautonima in EDS patients, including Dr. Pocinki, looked to Dr. Goldstein for his expertise in this area.

After the talk, Dr. Goldstein will stick around for a Q&A session.  So if you have any sort of dysautonomia, this will be an incredible meeting to attend and it will give you a chance to speak to a world expert in this field.  I must stress that he is not currently taking new patients, so this is your chance to have your important issues and questions addressed in an informal setting.

Dr. Goldstein graduated from Yale College and received an M.D.-Ph.D. in Behavioral Sciences from Johns Hopkins. After medical internship and residency at the University of Washington, he came to the NIH as a Clinical Associate in the NHLBI, obtaining tenure as a Senior Investigator in 1984. He joined the NINDS in 1990 to head the Clinical Neurochemistry Section and founded and directs the Clinical Neurocardiology Section, an Independent Section. He has received Yale’s Angier Prize for Research in Psychology, the Laufberger Medal of the Czech Academy of Sciences, 2 NIH Merit Awards, the Founders Award of the Bakken Heart-Brain Institute, the Distinguished Investigator Award of the Society for Clinical and Translational Science, and the NIH Distinguished Clinical Teacher Award. He is author of more than 500 research articles and several books, including “Adrenaline and the Inner World: An Introduction to Scientific Integrative Medicine”, “Dysautonomias: A Handbook for Patients”, “Stress, Catecholamines, and Cardiovascular Disease”, and “The Autonomic Nervous System in Health and Disease.”

I hope to see you at the meeting!  If you have any questions, please contact me at edsdcmember@gmail.com.  Don’t forget to sign up! We are not allowed to go over the capacity of the room.
