  12. The Clusterbusters, Inc. 9th Annual Cluster Headache Conference in Nashville TN, is now only 45 days away. This year's lineup of speakers will educate, entice and hopefully entertain all that attend during the September 18 to 21, 2014 weekend. If you are planning on making it to this event, we urge you to register and make your hotel reservations, if you need them, as soon as possible.  Attendance is running higher than last year and we have a limited number of rooms remaining. There are other hotels nearby if the room block at the Inn at Opryland fills. There are many things that need to be planned based upon total attendance and the earlier we have a good number on how many are attending, the easier it is for us to plan ahead and make the conference as enjoyable for everyone as we can. Please register through the link below to assist us in planning. http://events.r20.constantcontact.com/register/event?oeidk=a07e8pr6aa003823ed7&llr=asfwt7iab What a line-up of speakers!! (see above) Questions: info@clusterbusters.com
  13. Try again now. The hotel has released more rooms for the dates. Sorry for delay in replying. FG

    I despise editing posts. But after discussion with other admin persons it seemed necessary in this thread which incorrectly identified wrong individuals and therefore cast doubt on their qualifications, expertise and commitment to persons with CH. Opinions are fine. Lets play nice. OK, I really hate editing posts. FG

  17. I've just sent out emails to all registrants on this message board with a new speaker list and the details of the conference. The main registration page is here: ONLINE REGISTRATION Yes, there is plenty of parking. To all the newcomers or first-timers thinking of coming --- I can only say these conferences are the experience of a CH lifetime, one you will not want to miss. And it will be a great conference, once again. FG
  18. Got this in the mail today from the researchers at John Hopkins. If you might qualify, please consider completing the survey. Researchers from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine are currently recruiting individuals who have quit smoking cigarettes or reduced their smoking (even temporarily) after an experience with a psychedelic, for participation in an online survey. Our team has previously conducted innovative research on the effects of compounds including psilocybin, dextromethorphan, and salvinorin A. The goal of this survey is to learn more about whether psychedelic drugs are associated with reduction or cessation of cigarette smoking. We want to characterize people's experiences in non­laboratory settings in which taking a psychedelic may have led to reducing or quitting smoking. For the purposes of this survey, we will be asking specifically about individuals who have quit smoking cigarettes or reduced their smoking (even temporarily) after experiences with psilocybin (magic) mushrooms, LSD, morning glory seeds, mescaline, peyote cactus, San Pedro cactus, DMT, or ayahuasca. This research study has been approved by the Institutional Review Board of Johns Hopkins Medicine. The survey is completely anonymous (IP addresses will not be recorded) and will require 40-45 minutes to complete. If you are interested in participating, please click the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/nonsmoker . Your participation is voluntary and will not be financially compensated. Participants must be 18+ years of age, speak/write English fluently, and have experienced a reduction or cessation of cigarette smoking after an experience with one of the psychedelic substances listed above. For more information, please contact the researchers via the site's private messaging system. Principal Investigator: Matthew W.

  24. Greetings all. The conference is fast approaching, got your room booked and registration confirmed yet? September 12 to 15, 2013. Each year we hold an auction and raffle. All of the items for the auction come from clusterheads, some who will be in attendance and many who can not make the trip to Chicago but help support our efforts. Every year there are some truly beautiful and amazing items donated to the auction and raffles, we thank everyone for their generosity. Clusterbusters has arranged for an address in Chicago to send any items you wish to donate to the conference.  We truly appreciate any and all donations as all monies raised help fund the research, education, advocacy and support projects we have underway.  Due to the open nature of the boards, I will not post the address on this public-viewable message board. If you have items you wish to send to Chicago, please contact us by email (address below) or PM me and we can set up the delivery. A big thank you to the people in Chicago who are assisting with this, we could not run this event without your help If by some chance your package is exceptionally large or heavy, please advise as we may need to make other special arrangements. Thanks to all. Clusterbusters info@clusterbusters.com Link to Conference Information, Speaker List, Hotel Reservations and Registration: CONFERENCE DETAILS

    I can't take credit for anything that is changing. And I'm certainly no whiz at cyberspace. lol DJ manages the site and server for us, so anything that is happening is because of his tireless efforts for Clusterbusters and those with cluster headache. Thanks DJ!!
