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.

    Nice of them to quote his stupidest comment so that readers can make up their own minds. I would like to hear Walitt give us his personal definition of "biological", just to make sure it's the same as everyone else's. Just can't get rid of this image of him talking with his fingers crossed behind his back.

    from the article:

    Koroshetz, who is coordinating a Trans-NIH working group, pointed out that the NIH is currently determining strategic focus areas, and will be issuing requests for applications focused on ME/CFS from universities and companies outside of NIH.”

    RFA!?!?!?!

    Yes, he said just about the same thing during the teleconference last week.

    Edit: Looks like the reporter was paraphrasing Koroshetz's remarks from the call.
