Can you report on the substance of the webinar for those who can’t tune in?

I’ve noticed many nurses & teachers posting too. I was a nurse for 45 years, in hospitals & the classroom. Count me in your stats.

Yes! I’m a masters prepared nurse & have noticed that coming up frequently. One of the sources for MAC has been cited as hospital environment because they keep the water temps below the level that kills MAC. Could that be the variable??

Katherine, is your miracle agent able to help people outside your area? I live in a suburb of Chicago & could use some help before the Fall “change” option rolls around!

Dr Cook was my plan B if I couldn’t get in to see Dr Aksamit @ Mayo. Haven’t been able to wrangle an appointment with Aksamit, so will keep my August appointment with Cook. He’s very close to my home so plan B is fine with me.
I was diagnosed in January of this year and put on the big 3 antibiotics but my ID doc admits she has little experience with this condition and recommended Cook or Dr Gwen Hewit in Denver as experts. I appreciate her honesty and look forward to getting my questions answered.

Thanks! That makes me feel better about seeing him.

Me too! I have an appointment with Dr James cook at Loyola, Chicago, in August and am anxious to find out as much as I can before the sit down. Anyone know this Dr?
