If you come, please introduce yourself to me and Mom. We look like this:
(We each created our own Simpsons character several years ago.)
I really wish I could be there! Will be stuck in Sweet Home Chicago, unfortunately. But at 2:30 pm Eastern I promise to stop and think of Mickey — and smile.
I also will be thinking of Mickey at the time of the memorial.
Unfortunately I will not be able to attend, but I hope the memorial is an outpouring of support and respect for Dr Nardo’s efforts.
And hopefully more people step up to the proverbial plate and will take over the continued efforts to challenge poor judgment in both Psychiatry and general medicine as a whole
I too wish I could be there, although I think Mickey would say I had a good excuse–I’m on the Board of the National Physicians Alliance, and we have our meeting this week-end in DC (Damn!)–I would have really like to go and meet more of the crowd. But our group is dedicated to integrity in medicine — we don’t take money or anything from pharma or device companies, and we advocate & educate for putting patients first. Just like Mickey!
Well, I’m sorry we didn’t get to meet you, but the good news is that one of Dad’s friends video’d the entire thing. Plus it sounds like some of you were off doing the kinds of things Dad would have loved. I know Dad was absolutely not done with the work he wanted to do here, and so I’m glad so many of you are still at it! Thank you!
Dear Abby. Your dad’s work continues. I was happy to spot his name yesterday, Mickey Nardo, as the credits at the end of the documentary Cause of Death: Unknown, premiered at documentary film festivals in Copenhagen, then in Oslo, very well visited both places, before it;s launched in theaters nationally and internationally. The film is painstakingly researched in the course o’s f 11 years after the officially unexplained death of Renate, the director Anniken Hoel’s elder sister, who suddenly dropped dead after years of psychiatric treatment with the too common massive load of psyc-meds. I spoke with the American producer Andrew Grant about your dad. He said Mickey Nardo had helped enormously with their research, that they were most grateful for this, and most saddened about his – to us far away – unexpected death, not getting the chance to meet him in person and say thank you. I try linking to the film here: https://www.facebook.com/CauseOfDeathUnknown/ Love to you and yours. from Berit, We Shall Overcome some day, somehow..
