    Well done, Jeanette.
     
    Interesting that the NIH "suggested" that the IOM change the basic "Task Description" to include
     
    "Prerequisite that committee expertise include ME/CFS and behavioral science"
     
    and the IOM included it but changed that to "behavioral health"
     
    It would be really interesting to know exactly who has done what in this whole process.

    Thank you Jeannette.
    Clearly, nothing about the IOM contract is “independent”. NIH paid for it and set the parameters with the knowledge that IOM will satisfy NIH’s agenda – as they always do. We should not forget that NIH is IOM’s biggest customer.
