RSM CFS Conference in Bristol, 18 September 08

It has been brought to my attention that there is another RSM CFS Conference for RSM members and health professionals being held in September 2008, this time in Bristol.

One of the speakers is Mary Jane Willows who is listed as a “Person with CFS/ME”.  Why is it not being disclosed that Ms Willows is the CEO of AYME (Association of Young People with ME)?
