   Presentations Given by Dr. Rokicki

General Directions:

I have given the following presentations during patient meetings as well as professional conferences. These presentations include information that may help you improve the way you cope with your chronic illness.

The following presentations are in Corel "Show It" format. If you are using Netscape or Internet Explorer, you must get the plug-in to view these presentations. Once you get and install the plug-in, you will be able to view the slides. To advance slides and bullets within the slides, click the left mouse button or hit the spacebar. To end the slideshow, hit ESCAPE or hit the BACK button of your browser. If you are an AOL user, you currently cannot view these files...I'm currently figuring out a way that you can!More will be coming soon!
