The Real ME: A Stock Photography Resource for the Media
We’ve all seen them in the news stories about ME/CFS: the guy in a suit at the office, yawning; the beautiful woman sitting at her desk with her immaculate make-up and elegantly coiffed hair, hand to her head and looking slightly pained.

    The US federal CFS Advisory Committee will be holding their annual Spring meeting tomorrow 5/10 and Wednesday 5/11 from 9AM to 5PM EST. The meetings are broadcasted live online. See the right-hand column on the link below to find out how to watch!


    WHY should you watch? You get to hear directly from the CDC, NIH, Social Security, Medicare, FDA, etc. about their views on CFS. Their views affect how your doctors treat you, how much research funding CFS gets, whether you get or continue to get Social Security, what Medicare will or won't cover for CFS care, etc. In addition, Day 2 of this meeting talks about ERISA and long-term disability insurance.

    Furthermore, just by the act of watching, you send a message to Washington that people care about CFS. The US gov't counts number of views and this is how they get a sense of US interest in CFS. Realize that the last CFSAC meeting got over 900+ views and this is why the meetings continued to be broadcasted.

    Can't watch the whole thing? Watch for a few minutes.
    Can't watch tomorrow but you are on the computer? Let it run in the background.
    Can't watch tomorrow at all? See the archived versions later on. We'll remind you when it's posted.
