LET’S BUILD AWARENESS TOGETHER

 

New Resources and Videos

To help the broader community better understand ME / CFS as we currently understand it, we have recently updated our webpage, What is ME / CFS. What is ME / CFS now includes supporting pages on symptoms and a comparison of the different ME / CFS diagnostic criteria. These resources are meant to be a valuable tool for you that can be shared to help educate your personal community – family, friends, and medical professionals.

In addition, we are pleased to introduce several new short videos for you to share:
