    On this link http://www.hhs.gov/advcomcfs/meetings/index.html there is a link to the videocast when time comes. (Correction: disregard, my mistake this limk is for previous meetings)

    Would it be too much asking for good news at CFSAC this year? :angel:

    That's weird - on that link, it says the meeting is the 18th & 19th, but on the original info it was the 17th and 18th - that is, here:

    http://www.hhs.gov/advcomcfs/index.html

    I wonder which it is?

    Sorry my mistake. IT says AUGUST 18-19. I should delete my post to not mislead people.

    I am a bit confused, As a community I don't see even a topic on the disease name and I see some people adapting SEID. so shouldn't this be discussed / decided?

    Uhm well you know, CFSAC has no power. They can only advise the secretary and in the past decade, that didn't go too well. There might be chances that the #Millionsmissing protest might be more helpful but who knows? :rolleyes:

    Four hours to go! Very much looking forward to hearing the agency updates (for once!) after all that's happened with the NIH and the intramural study in the past few months.

    I just noticed it's two half days this time. From 2 days to 1 1/2 days and now essentially down to 1 day. Keeps getting shorter and shorter doesn't it?

    Bump!

    Starts in an hour.

    Don't forget that if you're going to watch it on your computer you need to install that programme first.

    Either this is running five minutes late or I've made a mess of it. :(

    No audio (or video) for me yet either - just a holding slide showing.
