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.

    This PDF came up in a Google scholar subscription I have for "chronic fatigue syndrome". I'm not 100% sure when the file was created but the updates I get are daily.

    The document you posted is from May, when the president released his budget wish list.
    https://www.cdc.gov/budget/fy2018/congressional-justification.html

    The cuts were reinstated by the Senate committee that handles CDC. http://solvecfs.org/updates-from-the-mecfs-fight-in-washington-dc/

    The govt is operating on a continuing resolution, which means everyone gets the same money as last year. When Congress does pass a spending bill for the fiscal year that just started, it should include the $5.4 million for CDC because it's in the spending bill as of now.

    @Dolphin , just an FYI, assuming you are using Adobe Reader to view that, or any other, PDF, if you go File>Properties, then you will be able to see when the document was created (19/05/2017) and last modified (25/05/2017).
