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.

    Blog post from The Microbe Discovery Project, giving an overview of some of the recent news from the ME/CFS world. It picks up something that I'd missed, that apparently Francis Collins has been asked to stay on as NIH director. Also covers Ron's recent videos, the recent articles bashing PACE, NIH Directors blog and Unrest.

    Very interesting - thanks for pointing this out @AndyPR .

    Earlier this week I saw that John Ioannidis was being asked to head NIH.
    "Mr. Ioannidis, whose name has become synonymous with reproducibility, has himself has become a subject of concern. Multiple news reports in recent weeks described the Trump administration as considering him to head the National Institutes of Health. Mr. Ioannidis isn’t seeking the job, and said in an interview that he has "no tolerance for any overt or covert anti-science agendas."
