    ooo… what is this requirement that 'the panel be highly competent in the issues'? It seems that a panel of mostly non experts would not be highly competent in the issues, if by 'the issues' they mean the issues they are to decide, i.e. an MEcfs case definition.

    I think it's obvious that people aren't only worried about a situation in which there is not one person with ME clinical experience, but the apparently ok by their own rules situation of having only a very few ME clinicians.

    Jennie, thanks for making a FOIA request for the contract. I was starting to do that and now I have one less thing to do.

    I sent some questions to Carol Head, new CAA CEO. I asked who CAA nominated for the IoM panel and whether CAA nominated or endorsed Suzanne Vernon for the GWI redefinition panel. Her response on these topics:

    Not happy to see them nominating non-experts in ME.

    Very disappointed in Dr. Komaroff for nominating Dr. Vernon.
