Live Webcast Tomorrow on IOM Report

Announcement from Solve ME/CFS Initiative:

On March 25, the Solve ME/CFS Initiative will host a briefing on the Institute of Medicine report in Washington, D.C. The briefing, which will include media, congressional leaders and executive branch decision-makers, is intended to further the IOM report momentum and turn the report into action, particularly by urging additional federal research funding.

The briefing will feature three speakers:

- Dr. Ellen Wright Clayton, Chair of the IOM Committee on the Diagnostic Criteria for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Dysautonomia: Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS)
- Morgan Fairchild, Actress, Activist and Patient
- Carol Head, Solve ME/CFS Initiative President/CEO

You can watch the briefing live by registering at this link - you must register ahead of time to get the link to the live webcast. I just signed up - it only took a minute.

I was surprised to see that Morgan Fairchild is an ME/CFS patient - I had no idea!

Here's my summary of the IOM report and announcement from last month.
