New CFS Advisory Committee Members Named
Advocacy Alert: 4/26/2007
The Department of Health and Human Services Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Advisory Committee (CFSAC) will meet in Washington, D.C. on May 16-17. At the most recent meeting of the committee, held in November 2006, five members' terms expired and they were recognized by Assistant Secretary John Agwunobi for their service.
New appointees to the CFSAC have not yet been formally announced, but we have learned from four prominent CFS researchers that they have recently been invited to serve:
Dr. Ronald Glaser
Ohio State University
Dr. Leonard Jason
Dr. Nancy Klimas
University of Miami
Dr. Christopher Snell
University of Pacific
Meetings of the CFSAC are open to the public and a limited number of testimony slots are available to address the committee. Anyone wishing to deliver remarks of 5 minutes or less should contact the Office of Public Health and Science at (202) 401-7899 by May 11.
Congratulations to these researchers for being recognized by Secretary Michael Leavitt for their contributions to CFS through this appointment to the CFSAC.
