    On Wednesday, April 14th, (2:00 p.m. EST) the CFIDS Association will host their next webinar on Defining CFS: Diagnostic Criteria & Case Definition. Here is info. on the upcoming webinar from the registration page:

He will discuss the various CFS case definitions, how they impact research and care, and how the definitions might be improved to better serve researchers, clinicians, and patients
