MEAction: #MEAction protests Per Fink at Columbia University - Here's what happened Donny Moss, an able-bodied activist and ally, managed to enter the conference room where Fink was speaking to disrupt his talk by yelling, “Spreading this misinformation about people with ME is reckless. When people with ME are under attack, what do we do? Stand up, fight back! ” ... Four ME activists, including a doctor, attended the conference in order to question Fink about his unscientific theory. They asked Fink to justify the harm that graded exercise therapy has caused people with ME given the aerobic energy metabolism impairment within the disease. Fink responded that there is no evidence that exercise causes harm and that exercise is appropriate for every condition whether biological or not. Per Fink’s sessions were not heavily attended (only 12 people attended his workshop) but the participants seemed primed to accept psychological constructs like Fink’s, as well as the mantra that exercise is always good, Mary Dimmock reported.
