International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    Excellent article by David Tuller published on the Health Affairs website. Health Affairs has been called the "Bible of health policy" by the Washington Post.

    This is a really good summation of recent positive developments such as the Lipkin study, IOM report and the NIH's response to that, as well as a good explanation of what has been keeping the illness in a research backwater (namely, the easy "answers" of the psychogenic explanation as exemplified by PACE).

    I found myself trying to give such a summary to my cardiologist recently (he's interested, but it is obviously not his specialty) and it would have been easier just to hand him this article.

    So if we post comments, they may be read by some influential people? (It's open moderated comments - no login needed, hint, hint)

    p.s. This article is fourth on the "Most Read" list at http://healthaffairs.org/blog/

    It's now #1 Most Read and there's still plenty of room for comments. So far no trolls or comment hijackers...
