Wendy Dolin speaks in Copenhagen

Wendy Dolin (founder) speaks on Drug-Induced Akathisia in Copenhagen at a conference arranged by Professor Peter G√łtzsche, the founder of the Nordic Cochrane Centre.

While recognizing the essential benefits that medications provide, Wendy discusses the need for achieving transparency in reporting drug side effects so that akathisia becomes a household name. The hope is that when reactions occur after starting, stopping or changing doses of a drug, people will be aware of the side-effect symptoms and can get help.

Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who attended the 2015 Annual MISSD Fundraiser at the glamorous Studio Paris! It was a celebratory night filled with music, a lively silent auction, tasty small bites and plenty of drinks to toast great friends and supporters. The money raised this year allows us to continue spreading awareness locally, nationally and internationally through conferences, presentations and more. A very special thank you to NBC5 for their continued support and Allison Rosati for such a moving speech that called attention to our mission and the work we do every day.
