We did not manage to hold a Membership and Board Meeting in the first few months of 2014 (with purpose to see if RMCFA can be revitalized by the volunteer help of more people). We still hope to hold a meeting of some sort, now looking to June, July, or August.
Joint Request from the ME/CFS Community for Action to Secretary Sebelius, Assistant Secretary Koh, and Deputy Assistant Secretary Lee - here
We are asking Secretary Sebelius to convene a meeting between ME/CFS patient representatives and key representatives from across DHHS to better understand our concerns and then work with us to formulate a strategic, coordinated and fully-funded response to the challenge of ME/CFS.
Please take time to read and sign this petition supporting the Joint request effort - Thank you!
