Society seminar reminder
Wednesday 5 May 2010
If you are able, please join us this Saturday, 8 May, 1pm at the Sofia Conference Room (situated in Cabra Dominican College), 225 Cross Rd Cumberland Park (see map below). Peter Taubert and Peter Evans will discuss how common chemicals can affect us, particularly in relation to ME/CFS and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity sufferers.
Here are the details:
Peter Taubert has published several books on the toxic effects of common chemicals.
Peter Evans established the SA Task Force on Multiple Chemical Sensitivity and is a community representative with the inter-agency MCS Reference Group convened by the SA Dept. of Health.
The cost for each meeting is a gold coin for members, $5 for non-members.
Sofia is at the western end of Cabra College (i.e. the seaside end, not the hills end). We believe the Circle Line goes past there (ring and check before you accept our word for this), and there are bus stops for other routes on Goodwood Road for those who can walk further. Go in the gate marked Sofia - it's the next gate along travelling towards the sea from the Cabra College entry. The conference room is in the modern building a little way down that lane. On previous experience, there is no designated car park per se, but our small number of cars shouldn't cause havoc if we park off the roadway.
Please wear warm comfortable loose fitting clothing and you may like to bring a rug or cushion. You can sit in a chair or on a cushion or lie on a carpeted floor if unwell. The venue is heated using gas.
Many people with ME/CFS are extremely chemically sensitive, so we ask attendees to refrain from wearing aftershaves, perfumes etc, and please refrain from smoking at our meetings.
Please note that this program is subject to change.
