Do you have to register in order to be able to listen, or is registering only necessary if you want to talk?
Good question @Sing. I don't know.

On the last NIH Advocacy Call March 7, 2018 questions from listeners were taken after Dr. Lipkin's talk.

It would be helpful if NIH would post an Agenda for their Telebriefings so we know ahead of time who the speakers and topics are and can plan questions accordingly.

That said have not seen an Agenda for this call.

The trouble is that only the immediate cause of death is probably noted, such as heart failure, suicide, etc. They don’t say “ME/CFS” since our illness is already a ghost illness.

The NIH Neuro dept needs our brains to autopsy—-makes sense!

Dr. Komaroff said they (collectively) want to do more research on our lab values after an exercise or orthostatic challenge to look for abnormalities and to compare these values with those measured in previous research when our bodies are at rest.
