Wahls Research Fundraiser September 20th 2014
Wahls Research Fundraiser – September 20th 2014
We have exciting news to share: Our work is being noticed by the National MS Society! I have been invited to participate in a meeting sponsored by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society on November 6 and 7. They will be evaluating their programming and research goals in the area of Wellness, and I will get to share my input. I’m very excited!
We are hosting the dinner at: Cedar Rapids Marriott, The Cedar Grille
1200 Collins Road NE
Cedar Rapids, Iowa 52402
Dress code: casual
Cocktails: 6:30pm – 7:00pm
Dinner: 7:00pm – 8:30pm
Enjoy a Wahls Protocol Meal featuring grass-fed beef, specially prepared for our dinner. You may also select an entrée from the menu.
Dinner, non-alcoholic beverage and gratuity are included. Alcoholic beverages are not included, but available for purchase.
Our second research paper is under review, and we have three more papers in development. Two more studies will end in December, at which time we will analyze the data and get started on another paper. We just applied for another grant from the National MS Society and will start working on more grant applications soon.
All these wonderful things happen because of your support. Step by step, our research lab is changing the world. We could not do it without you.
We are having a fundraiser on September 20, 2014 to support the Wahls Research Fund, and all proceeds will go to my research lab. The fundraiser will include a private dinner that is Wahls Paleo–compliant and a review of my research program. I will personally present our preliminary data, show videos of participants walking before and after 12 months of intervention, and give detailed analyses of their progress. I’ll also discuss our subsequent studies and plans for future studies. And most importantly, I will answer questions from guests and engage in a lively, open discussion with those who attend.
Tickets are available for the Wahls Research Fund Fundraiser for $1,000, and it will be an intimate group limited to only 11 attendees. Those who purchase tickets will receive a receipt for their tax-deductible donation equal to $1,000 minus the cost of dinner. You can purchase your tickets here.
We realize that most of you are not able to donate $1,000, however worthy the cause. However, you can still make a difference. The University of Iowa Foundation has created a fund that allows you to make individual donations of as little as $10. We would be thrilled to have your support in any amount. Your contribution will help support our next project, which will analyze the functional MRI data from the subjects who have completed 12 months of intervention. This analysis is a costly procedure, totaling $25,900. With your help, we could complete that analysis and hopefully unlock a deeper understanding of how blood flow to the brain is changed by the study interventions. This will help explain the mechanisms by which people are improving as they adopt our study interventions. Furthermore, reports of our work and the MRI findings will elevate our research to an entirely new level. Can you help us achieve that goal?
If we are to get interventions in diet, meditation, and exercise to become the standard of care for treating neurological problems, then we need hard data to present at national meetings and publish in top-tier journals. You can help us achieve that goal!
Please donate to the Wahls Research Fund today. And if you can, please buy a ticket to the Wahls Research Fund Fundraiser, which promises to be an instructive and enjoyable evening.
Thank you for your continued support.
