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.

    It does seem like US science journalism is much better than UK. In the UK, many just seem to be writing up press releases from researchers without doing any critical thinking or research of their own. It's a very different mentality to that taken by political journalists, and this is to the detriment of honest and accurate science reporting.
