Thank you so much for organising the event today. It was very informative for me to be able to talk to others with CRPS and to hear the speakers. I learned a lot about cannabis and the use of it today. H.M.
My family really learned a lot about CRPS and it meant a lot to me to be able to connect with others that are going through the same thing at the conference yesterday. I would love to go to more of these events in the future hopefully when I am better.Thank you for all you do, I wish you many blessings, C. L.
Helen, I just wanted to take a moment and let you know how great the conference was Saturday. The speakers were all informative and I am a HUGE fan now of Tara Packham. Imagine a medical model that involves the needs and wishes of the patient in the total care - wow, we have come a long way in our journey!!! J.B.
My only feedback to you re: Saturday was the chairs were so very hard. Perhaps in future we could have more "official" stretch breaks. I am confident to just stand up when I need to but I know a few newer members said to me they wished they had done so but did not feel comfortable to interrupt the talks". J.B.
The three speakers were excellent and provided a huge amount of knowledge.They patiently answered all of our questions. We thank Dr Arash for his cannabis knowledge and easy, comprehensive approach.We thank Dr. Tara Packham PhD, for explaining CRPS so well and telling us about glia cells and nerves.We thank our Dr. D.L. Shulman, for his words on hope for the future. H.S.

The sunny day provided a good backdrop for a beautiful walk at Point Pleasant Park. The walk around was 3.1 km. The group was very enthusiastic and many walkers went around 3 times.
