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.

    That's a very good write-up of the conference. Especially interesting is the section outlining Prof Davey Smith's presentation, starting page 31. I think it may suggest where the 'omics' study is heading. Thanks to those who wrote it all up. Looks like a phenomenal effort.

    Prof Stephen Holgate's opening address setting out his vision - which I think is prett clear
    Specifically on the Grand Challenge
    A 2-day meet will take place this April with many researchers new to mecfs, with the aim of applying for a major grant (they are talking of 10,000 patients) before the end of the year.
