I had the honor of being invited to provide a presentation to the New Jersey Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Association on October 18, 2009. The conference was held at the Sheraton Eatontown, and was well attended. The presentation was entitled “Professional Advocacy by Objective Documentation and Active Intervention on Behalf of the CFS Patient.”
It was a great opportunity to share insight about the disability claim process to the patient community suffering from this somewhat amorphous, misunderstood medical condition, and to offer support to the claimants who all too often struggle to find medical practitioners willing to be their providers and advocates for disability claims.
The presentation was well received, and afterwards I was able to spend additional time in various one on one sessions with individual claimants to discuss their specific claim concerns. These types of forums are always rewarding since there are so many claimants who are unable to access legal advocates during these difficult and challenging times.
The conference presentation can be accessed here.
