Sally will be giving a 120 minute lecture at Loughborough University, Loughborough, Leicestershire, UK on Saturday, May 16, 2015.  The following is from the conference website


About the conference

This conference is for healthcare professionals and educators from all disciplines. It has been arranged by Tracey Witty of to promote greater awareness and understanding of B12 and Thyroid disease.

The conference also seeks to highlight the associations between these two commonly encountered health conditions and explain how nutrigenomics (an exciting new field of study emerging from the research into genetics, methylation and nutrition) may be employed to treat patients according to individual need.

The four speakers are highly knowledgeable, experienced and engaging. They will discuss the multi-systemic and polyglandular nature of the conditions, diagnosis & misdiagnosis, personalised treatment options and appropriate data sources.

The conference offers guaranteed clinical relevance and interest for professionals from a wide variety of healthcare settings.

Time/cost saving treatment approaches will also be discussed.

Q&A time with the speakers is scheduled.

The conference is competitively priced to include lunch, free on-site parking and a post conference webinar. ‘Early bird’ booking is advisable.

“Sally Pacholok” the Movie

In 2014, film producer Elissa Leonard wrote and directed the movie Sally Pacholok, which is based on Pacholok’s life-long battle to raise awareness about B12 deficiency and the consequences of its misdiagnosis.  The drama  is fast-paced and cleverly written.  The audience is entertained, yet learns what happens when B12 deficiency strikes.  Pacholok is an attractive whistle-blower who goes up against a wealthy heath care system and saves lives behind closed doors.  The movie explains what forced her to write “Could It Be B12?”  Passionate, romantic, and suspenseful, this film shows the power of one woman who changes the standard of care–but nothing is as easy as it looks.  Pacholok may be the Florence Nightingale of the 21st century.

The movie is scheduled to premier at 7:20pm on February 28, 2015, at the DC Independent Film Festival in Washington, DC at the Naval Heritage Center’s Burke Theater (701 Pennsylvania Avenue NW).  This showing has sold out as of February 11.  A second showing has been added on March 1, 2015 at 11:00am.
