ME with Mary Dimmock and Jen Brea


Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) is a little-known but devastating and disabling disease affecting an estimated 1 million people in the USA, but doctors don’t learn about it in medical school.

Advocate Mary Dimmock, who worked 30 years at Pfizer, talks about the condition and the current situation patients face, both medically and politically.

Jen Brea, a Harvard Ph.D. candidate on leave due to ME discusses her film Canary in a Coal Mine, the incredible response to the film’s Kickstarter campaign, and her advocacy for herself and other patients.
