#MillionsMissing Visibility Action & Medical Student #UNREST Screening. Belfast, UK
VIRTUAL DEMONSTRATION DETAILS:
This year we are not asking patients to attend an outside event. This is for a number of reasons, the main reason being most are too unwell and as our membership spans across all of Northern Ireland this makes it very difficult for travel to any particular town or city.
However, everyone can still take part in this year’s event and can be included by sending an A5 poster with a photo and short message by post, email or pm via Facebook. Before illness and after photos are particularly effective, you can add how long you have been ill or if you have lost your career or whatever you wish to say to student doctors and social workers as explained below.
If you are unable to make up a poster, just email us the details you wish to be included and we will do the rest. Please send ASAP to enable the display board to be made up and get transported to Belfast.
Please join us to ensure Northern Ireland patients are again made visible on 23rd May 2019!
CLOSED UNREST SCREENING IN QUEEN’S FILM THEATRE
The UNREST screening is closed to the public but the GOOD news is, as a part of our ME education programme and thanks to Queen’s University lecturers, who have secured 150 medical students and so far, 10 social workers are booked to see UNREST!
Millions Missing information leaflets will be included in charity’s education packs being provided for all attendees and the Millions Missing large placards and banners will be on display inside Queen’s Film Theatre also.
The A5 patient stories will be on display for medical students and social workers to read. We believe this will have even more of an impact than just having the general public witness an outside demonstration. These are the doctors of the very near future, help them understand the devastation to our lives.
####### Volunteers to give out information packs inside Queen’s Film Theatre are needed. #######
