March 16, 2010 — The Meniere’s Research Organization will be hosting its 10th annual Meniere’s disease Lyceum in Grand Rapids, Mich. June 26, 2010, from 9 a.m.-9 p.m.
It will be the first Meniere’s Symposium to invite both doctors and patients alike to participate in the sharing of the latest scientific findings on Meniere’s disease (MD) and Trigeminal neuralgia (TN), both in traditional medicine and complementary and alternative medicine. Registration fee is $200 for doctors, $50 for patients and $25 for guests and students.
Dr. James Tomasi will be the featured speaker in the morning session. Dr. Michael Burcon will also be presenting.
Meniere’s disease and Trigeminal neuralgia abstracts should be submitted before April 26, 2010. Abstracts should be 500 to 1,000 words and should be submitted electronically to DrBurcon@yahoo.com, along with a current vita showing educational and other scholarly accomplishments.
Also include your name, address, phone and fax numbers and e-mail address with each submission. (Since the symposium is for both Meniere’s disease patients and Trigeminal neuralgia patients and their health care givers, both traditional and alternative, a broad range of MD and TN topics will be considered. Presenters will be notified by May 26, 2010 and will receive complimentary registration to the event.)
Each double-spaced detailed abstract should include: Title, introduction, discussion, conclusion and references.
• Introduction – Describes the objective of the presentation.
• Discussion – Interprets findings of the research and compares with findings of similar papers. Strengths and weaknesses of your work should also be discussed. This section should also include methods and results.
