Program: Amelia Withington, MD will present the latest information on Morgellons disease. Come hear one of the few doctors who has had Morgellons and learn from her experience as both a patient and a physician. Learn more about Dr. Withington here. =>
"To my knowledge I am one of only three medical doctors in the US who have Morgellons. I might have something to offer from my experience that might be useful to this unique gathering. I will be telling you my personal tale in the hope that it might provide some helpful information for each of you. If nothing else, it may be comforting to some of you to hear a doctor acknowledging from her own experience that Morgellons is a bona fide disease. Link to full text of Dr. Withington's presentation - 16 pages.
