From Invest in ME Research.
IIMEC14 is the fourteenth annual international ME conference that the charity has organised in London.
For many of those years the charity often communicated with a patient/advocate in Sweden – someone we are proud to have called our friend.
Anne Örtegren passed away in January 2018.
Anne was not just a good friend of the charity, she was an inspiration and a reason to continue to work hard to get high-quality biomedical research into ME and up-to-date education in healthcare and the disease.
Despite incredible suffering, she was able to influence so many positive things in the ME world – from helping other patients, to educating the media and the public about ME, to encouraging researchers to become interested in ME and working with clinicians to learn more about ME.
She was a vital link in helping us to working to build international collaboration, especially in her native Sweden.
