While the language of the notice is vague ("your therapy"), what happens at these sessions is crystal clear: MDs who are paid by the pharmaceutical industry hype a particular MS medication. If "your therapy" involves rest, exercise, or anything other than a pill or infusion, then you'll find that these sessions are all about one thing: free steak with a pharmaceutical chaser.
Now, don't get me wrong: I'm not opposed to my fellow MSers who choose to take meds. I may someday, too. What I am opposed to, however, are these insidious meetings that are listed as informational but are actually propagandistic. The free food is almost always steak or seafood or something else enticing but probably not ideal for those of us who should avoid inflammation ... and the doctors are paid to make a pitch.
I'm sure the money is good for Dr. Wynn, who has a practice up in Chicago. Otherwise, he probably wouldn't make the trip down state to help us all out.
