During the month of May, groups around the world have activities and projects to create awareness and to educate on environmental sensitivities.
Since ASEQ-EHAQ was started in 2004, several events have been organized for this month and also for May 12, which is the day for environmental sensitivities. These events include conferences in person and online, advocacy, giving out educational materials, reaching out to other groups to support this cause, educating decision-makers, etc.

All our events for the entire month of May 2022 are dedicated to the memory of Dr. Lynn Marshall

Speaker: Dr. Ellie Stein
Title: MCS and Anxiety: Dispelling the Myth with Dr. Ellie Stein
Date: Friday, May 6, 2022
Time: 7:00 to 8:00 pm
From her 20 years + experience as a psychiatrist treating patients with MCS, Dr Stein will explain why, although some people with MCS (as with any medical condition) can have mental health symptoms, MCS is not a psychiatric disorder. When patients with MCS are misdiagnosed as having a mental health disorder, their physical symptoms are dismissed and they are offered incorrect treatment.
