STREAMING LIVE NOW: CFSAC Meeting in DC until 4 pm Eastern Time.May 10, 2010

It’s a time of high tension in the ME/CFS community. Many wonder if and when CFS Advisory Committee (CFSAC) recommendations will be honored, whether meaningful research will be supported, and even whether this meeting may mark the Committee’s end (its charter expires in September).

The CFSAC & The Meeting
The CFSAC provides advice and recommendations to the Secretary of the US Dept. of Health & Human Services on issues related to ME/CFS. This is done through public meetings held in Washington, DC twice a year, with Wanda K Jones, Principal Deputy Asst. Secretary for Health, currently presiding. CFSAC members will present reports, and patients & advocates will make brief public statements.
