Unbelievable--this is a first. Passed unanimously!
This is history in the making! Congratulations Ryan and Timbre!
Now we just need to teach people how to pronounce it.
So much gratitude for Ryan and Timbre! Thank you!
There is a certain irony (or poetic justice) in the fact that this resolution (presented by a representative who explains that ME is a physical illness) was passed unanimously... just five miles from the CDC in Atlanta, where Dr. Reeves once held sway.
Worth watching just the first thirty seconds for that guy to attempt to pronounce "myalgic encephalomyelitis" and get a cheer from the audience.
Yeah, I like that. Shows that not everyone is of the Scientific mind and experience, but he made a pretty good attempt at pronouncing ME, was not to far off!
What does this actually mean?
We hope to use the resolution and the assistance of Rep. Cooper to work with community health agency, medical board and the Medical College of GA to start getting ME taught and addressed, at least on some level. It will be long and slow but that's our hope. We are also hoping it can be replicated in many more states. ME Action will be putting out a guide document in the near future. Thanks y'all.
Wow, @Timbre, amazing work!!
Thank you @Timbre, you may well set the path to many states and perhaps other countries to do the same. Lookimg forward to the guide document in ME Action!
