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.

    Dr. Janine A. Clayton is the current Acting Director of ORWH. Dr. Vivian Pinn retired on August 31, 2011. (Dennis Mangan reported to Dr. Pinn.)

    Office for Research on Women's Health(ORWH) manages NIH's ME/CFS program thus Dr. Clayton is now responsible for it and for following up on the State of the Knowledge Workshop.

    This change happened a while ago, pls disregard if posted elsewhere.

    Dr. Charles Webb is taking over Dr. Dennis Mangan's responsibilities for ME/CFS (at least temporarily).

    Thanks for posting this mezombie!

    Will be interesting to hear Webb speak at the CFSAC tomorrow. I think he's the NIH rep, but I could be wrong.

    You're welcome Gemini. And yes, Webb is the NIH rep.
