Today I attended “Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, the XMRV Retrovirus, and the Human MLV-related Viruses: The latest on testing, treatments and research into XMRV and its relationship to chronic inflammatory neuroimmune disease, including Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Lyme Disease and Cancer” organized and hosted by Gordon Medical Associates in Santa Rosa, CA. Presenters were Dr. Judy Mikovits, Director of Research, Whittemore Peterson Institute and Annette Whittemore, President and Founder, Whittemore Peterson Institute.
I would be curious the final headcount, but if I had to estimate I’d guess approximately 150 people were in attendance. Gordon Medical Associates did a fantastic job organizing the event. It started off a little shaky as Dr. Mikovits was stuck on a plane en route from Reno. However, highlighting the collaborative nature of the WPI, Annette Whittemore took to the stage and presented a large part of Judy’s presentation eloquently and thoroughly – saving only the scientific diagrams for when Dr. Mikovits arrived.

The presentation started with a bit of background on the Whittemore Peterson Institute (WPI), including the building itself. The building came to be simply out of the need for visibility and collaboration. Whittemore knew the disease ailing her daughter was multi-systemed, and there were many different types of specialists required to address the research needs of CFS. She saw many of these different types of specialists were housed in buildings throughout the University of Nevada-Reno. Instinctively she knew the only way to effectively collaborate was to be among them. That is where the vision took hold.
