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.

    Reading the RFA on collaborative researcher centers.

    Definitions where post-exertional malaise is required are recommended.

    The section of research areas of interest is pretty good, with a few exceptions as it highlights somatization and personality disorders and does recommend research on mind body approaches for symptom management. That said it seems to be written to cover a broad range of topics, in a sort of "make everyone happy" way. It seems we won't be able to get rid of psychobabble completely. At least for now.
