2010 Webinar Series:
Bringing World-Class Programs Directly Into Your Home
Imagine that you’re offered the opportunity to hear a world-class scientist or clinician talk about a topic near and dear to your heart: CFS.
Think about all the details involved: travel, time, expense… and most important, precious energy.
Now imagine that you can hear that world-class scientist or clinician talk about CFS from the comfort of your own home – no travel, minimal expense and you can stay in bed during the presentation if you’d like!
Welcome to the Association’s 2010 Webinar Series! (A “webinar” is a seminar that is broadcast over the Web.) It’s just another way we used technology to deliver the information you want and need from top experts in the field in a cost-effective, convenient way.
You can find the past presentations on our website’s webinar page and on our SolveCFS YouTube channel. There is no charge to access the webinar recordings.
What’s a webinar?
Think about a webinar as a way to attend a conference without leaving home. Using your computer and telephone, you can hear a presentation (like a conference call) and also see the presenter's slides (watching over an Internet connection). You won't be able to see the presenter or the moderator, or others attending the program – and they won't be able to see you. (A plus if you want to attend in your pajamas!)
If your Internet connection isn't fast enough (for instance, if you use a dial-up connection), you can still listen (like a conference call) to the audio presentation by calling the phone number included in the confirmation email. In most cases, you'll be charged regular rates for the time you're on the phone. If you have a cell phone with an ample (or unlimited) usage plan, consider using it so that you don't incur expense for the call.
