Trial By Error: May 12th-International ME Awareness Day
11 MAY 2018
By David Tuller, DrPH
Saturday, May 12th, is International ME Awareness Day. (It’s also International Fibromyalgia Awareness Day, and the same for Gulf War Illness and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. But here we’re mostly focused on the first.) This day in the calendar was adopted years ago as an opportunity to promote the visibility of neuro-immune diseases. It has more recently become known for the #MillionsMissing campaign, spearheaded by ME Action, with events planned in more than 100 cities around the world.
