Dr Lapp’s lectures will be an overview of ME/CFS, diagnosis and best management practice, plus a look at the latest research on the illness which show promising results.

To have the opportunity to hear an international expert of Dr Lapp’s standing talk on this subject is an unmissable opportunity for not only our members, but also the New Zealand medical and research community and an opportunity for Medical Professionals to keep up with some of the latest breakthrough research releases.

That New Zealand based research by Professor Tate of the University of Otago and Dr Lynette Hodges of Massey University links directly to, and supports international research, is of great pride to the New Zealand ME/CFS community and clearly demonstrates the high calibre of New Zealand based researchers and clinicians.

“It is a real honour to be able to bring Dr Charles Lapp to New Zealand to speak with the medical profession and those living with ME/CFS, Fibromyalgia and related conditions.
