    Interesting post in form a fb friend

    Every time I've heard Mary Dimmock speak she's been impressive:


    "CDC states that Oxford, Fukuda, Canadian and the ME-ICC “identify similar pools of patients”.

    I hope the CFSAC meeting will be up on Youtube. I can't read much at the moment. I need to hear it.
