They should take this show on the road! I would imagine that just about every VA medical center in the country could use to hear this information. I am certain this conference will provide far more information that the VA has ever given doctors at the local level. I have yet to find a treating physician that even understands that Gulf War Illness is a real disease let alone having a strong working knowledge. I am so tired of being the one in the room during doctor appointments that knows more about my illness than my doctor I could just scream (and, admittedly, have let that scream loose in private at home on more than one occasion).

Perhaps they will record this on video? Maybe put some snippets on YouTube? Perhaps a teleconference for VA care providers? I'm looking for any help I can get here!

Any way I can charter a jumbo jet to send as many VA doctors as it can hold down to Miami?
