May 12/21: BC Lyme teamed up with the ME/FM Society of BC to meet with over thirty UBC medical students in several disciplines. Seven representatives spoke about our journeys and then we broke into three break-out rooms for longer discussions and question periods.

This project was a lot of work but well worth the effort.  Jeannine, Susan and Bill took part.
