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.

    Sounds fantastic.

    I don't know why the CMRC try to run a separate conference when the IiME ones seem so much better. Surely it's better to get everyone to go to the same conference.

    I think it's because the focus of IiME and their conference events and translational research strategy is strictly on the biomedical model @trishrhymes and fast-tracking progress. CMRC appears driven by a different agenda.

    You're right of course. I knew that. Just imagine how Crawley, White et al would enjoy David Tuller's keynote speech! :rofl::rofl::rofl:

    Not as much as David will enjoy giving it would be my guess ;-)

    And

    Classic avoidance behaviour. They fear that if they are exposed to actual scientific research results/progress, carried out by real scientists, using rigorous methods, this would challenge their false illness beliefs to such an extent that it might endanger their avoidance strategies. This could instantly rob them of the secondary gains of such beliefs. Such gains might include: financial benefits from those with a vested interest in the status quo and overly solicitous defence of their actions by those in positions of power.
