Yes. I like his approach. In the 'CFS definition' webinar he absolutly shredded the Emperic defnition all the while maintaing a balanced diplomatic tone.
It's too bad his time on the board is up. I don't think he'd give Dr. Unger much wiggle room the next time she makes an appearance.
He and Nancy should be on the board as long as they wish to serve.
I do think that the full committee did vote on making a recommendation to require the US blood banks to defer using the blood of patients with a history of CFS, including (I think) a requirement to ask the blood donor if they had a history of CFS (the holberg guy kept mentioning it is not the case in Canada to actually ask the question on the form for blood donors). The recommendation was a formal motion and was voted and it passed.
Also...because I had trouble logging in at the start of the webinar and only caught the very end of introductions and because the 'closed captioning' blocked my view of people's names... is there anyway to get a roadmap of who was sitting where at the conference table?
