    Here's Koh to add to Sebelius emails. It's hard to find his emails. Now he has CFSAC listed as one of his committees like he's doing the work!

    These other subcommittee level seems hard working ie Jerry Holmberg. Maybe we should bug some of the other ones. What have the offices for women's health done for us? They should bump us up to another committee or be advocating their asses off.

    On August 31, 2010, the Secretary of Health and Human Services announced in the Federal Register that the Office of Public Health and Science (OPHS) is now the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health (ASH).

    USA!
    Well done. We need to keep these and add to them as we find more media contacts and other government types that need some educating on ME/CFS.

    Can we STICKY this list to keep it up at the top and not lost???
    Bravo Rivka for a great job. I too have been doing my emailing but I use different headings and then do personal writing, etc. and then ask them in big red letters - What Have you Done...
    Great idea. We must keep going on this. Beat them and keep beating on them.

    We also need more out of the box ideas that are "free" like this. We need LOTS of this type of free advocacy to make NOISE!

    And we also need the Washington Post type ADs to hit everyone. So, think up more ideas on all fronts, post them, push, remind and people will do it.

    Love you Rrrr!! S.
