The Quinism Foundation is hosting a 2-day series of events at the Hotel Coolidge in White River Junction on April 30 and May 1. The events will showcase issues surrounding neuropsychiatric quinism, a medical condition caused by poisoning by quinoline drugs like the antimalarial drugs mefloquine and tafenoquine. These drugs can produce symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder such as terrifying nightmares, severe insomnia and crippling anxiety. Those attending will learn how the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs is addressing the burden of neuropsychiatric quinism among the veteran population. There will be several speakers from both civilian and military backgrounds.
These meetings are all free and open to the public. For more information and to register, visit www.quinism.org/meeting.
