    From what I remember, the women who was Obama's point person on ME/CFS left for a different job. I think I might have read here awhile ago that there is a new person taking care of ME/CFS. If someone knows where this message is, can you point me to it. And if you know a way to contact this person, please let me know.

    Courtney Miller was answered by Obama. Obama asked Nancy-Ann DeParle to stay in touch with Dr. Francis Collins at NIH and Dr. Howard Koh at HHS.

    Nancy-Ann DeParle resigned. I think there was an announcement here about who filled her position, but I can't find it.

    Rob Nabors filled Nancy-Ann DeParle's position, whether he picked up her ME/CFS assignment perhaps Bob or Courtney Miller can answer that for you?

    Thanks. After reading the replies I think I understand this better. What Obama did is let the heads of two important agencies know that he is concerned about this, and that he's watching them. All very good. But I don't see any leverage there in terms of investigating possible less than professional actions by the agencies themselves. IOW, he's taking them at their word.
