I do apologize for not writing more sooner. As most everyone knows, the 2012 Physician’s Round Table, January 26-28, in Tampa, Florida has been keeping me very busy. More information can be found at www.peerobservationsmagazine.com
Lately, many have inquired about Judy Mikovits, so I thought it might be a good time to contact her. While she was removed from the 2012 Physician’s Round Table lineup of presenters so that she could more fully concentrate on the current legal situation, she was never far from our thoughts and prayers.
I had an opportunity to catch up with Dr. Mikovits. I asked her how things were.
“I sincerely appreciate the support. I cannot discuss the legal issues as you might expect.
I am committed to moving forward this work and am working as the PI on the Lipkin study according to the original study design and we are confident that no matter what the results with MRVs, this study will move the field forward. We are also working on several initiatives in Canada and have been met with enthusiasm.
My current situation is horrendous and while I can say that I did not expect a bed of roses when I started working in the CFS community, knowing full well how other scientists and physicians have been treated poorly, I did not expect to be jailed. If this can happen to me without any wrongdoing, it can happen to anyone in the field and we all must stick together and make certain that our government knows that neither the patients nor the physicians/scientists find this acceptable.” – Dr. Judy Mikovits, 12/27/11
