On Saturday, September 10, 2011, the National CCSVI Society (NCS) will host a Canadian CCSVI Forum at the Mary Winspear Centre (http://www.marywinspear.ca/) in Sidney, BC. Chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI), a condition named by Italian vascular surgeon Dr. Paolo Zamboni, is more prevalent in those who have been diagnosed with MS. With CCSVI, the veins in the neck and chest are narrowed and therefore fail to allow blood to drain properly from the brain and spinal cord. A Canadian society formed in 2010, NCS will put Victoria on centre stage with New Discoveries, New Beginnings – its premiere CCSVI research and education event for the MS and CCSVI patient communities and the community at large. Leading Canadian researchers and physicians will present over four hours of medical research and patient education on how CCSVI is emerging as new vascular disorder linked to many poorly understood diseases, followed by a banquet dinner and silent auction.
Dr. Mark Haacke will give the keynote address. Other presenters include Dr. Bill Code, Dr. David Williams, Dr. Sandy McDonald, Dr. Joseph Hewett, Dr. Diana Driscoll, Dr. Raj Attariwala, and Dr. Michael Arata. Prominent CCSVI federal advocate and Canadian MP, Dr. Kirsty Duncan, is one of our featured dinner speakers.
Late breaking news: Dr. Bernie Juurlink will also be speaking at our event.
Simple venous angioplasty treatment for CCSVI has shown promising results to treat symptoms for some major neurodegenerative disorders. MS is just one on a large and growing list of conditions showing association with CCSVI, including Parkinson's, ALS, Alzheimer’s, and Dementia.
With awareness of CCSVI growing exponentially in Canada, the public’s need for accurate and current information regarding research is paramount. Corporate and personal event sponsorship options are available to fund this growing need for CCSVI education and research in Canada. NCS is looking to Canada’s major employers to help deliver this information to its employees, employee families, and the public at large by sponsoring, attending, donating auctionable goods and services, and promoting this Canadian CCSVI forum.
Our banquet dinner features a healthy selection of West Coast, gluten free favourites.
