    Excerpt:
    PRESS RELEASE: NEW YORK, NY (11/20/2013) An untold number of New Yorkers, perhaps well over 100,000, who have been diagnosed with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) could be at risk of relapsing and exacerbating their condition due to a course of a treatment suggested to them by the federal government, according to groundbreaking new research.

    It's a very educational piece and hopefully whoever reads it will learn something. Every little bit helps when it comes to educating the public.

    I'd like to encourage patients to comment favorably on this coverage so they know it's being read and appreciated. You can comment as a guest -- don't have to register. It could affect whether they "print" more on the subject, or not.
