I'm delighted to announce that Janet Dafoe has joined Phoenix Rising's Board of Directors. I expect that almost everybody reading this already knows Janet as the wife of Professor Ron Davis; as the mother and caretaker of her son Whitney Dafoe who is severely ill with ME/CFS; as a deeply committed advocate for the cause of ME/CFS patients; as a fundraiser for the OMF and for Ron's research; and also as Rose49 on the Phoenix Rising forums (I believe Janet has the most likes per post of any member on the forums!). Many may not be aware, however, of the wealth of experience as an academic, practitioner, diagnostician, educator, and non-profit board member that Janet is now bringing to Phoenix Rising. You can read a bit more about Janet's background, and about Phoenix Rising's other directors, on our Board of Directors page. I'm sure you will all join me in wishing Janet well in her new role.
