Updated: Jul 16, 2022

On November 29, 2021, we hosted a webinar for our members. Great to see so many of you together with us!

This session presented findings of our preliminary project examining the unmet needs of British Columbians living with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME). Full, short and graphic reports of this project: ME in BC: How the healthcare system for ME impacts clinicians and patients, is available at: Our research | MEFM SOCIETY OF BC. Watch the recording of this presentation below (or visit

Thank you again to our project partner, The Women’s Health Research Institute (at BC Women’s Hospital), and our project funder, The Vancouver Foundation.

In case you missed it, we also co-hosted a medical education session with ICanCME for the Federation of Medical Women in Canada: Medical Education Webinar: Myalgic Encephalomyelitis - Diagnosis, Management and Current Research - YouTube

Great job I will watch the recording, but to be clear, there is no 'Healthcare system for ME'. Also, (in noting the lack of diversity here re Women's health research institute, women's hospital, and federation of medical women etc..) a lot of men also have ME (possibly equal numbers) but are culturally conditioned away from reporting/discussing it simply because within the contemporary milieu men's distress elicits more disgust and blame than empathy. We are success-objects not sympathy-objects. I think the imbalance concerning who is seen to have this condition is more cultural than biological.
