MEAction & Washington DC / CDC Lighting Up Blue for ME/CFS International Awareness Day

Sharing this powerful art installation in Washington DC today from The #MEAction Network team. More to come from these brave efforts & thank you to everyone who contributed to this.

Also, the CDC shared today that, for the first time ever (to our knowledge at least):"On May 12, 2023, CDC will “light up” its Atlanta campus in blue in recognition of ME/CFS International Awareness Day."
