Solve ME/CFS Initiative President Carol Head was quoted in a recent article, “Chronic Fatigue: A Call for Real Answers to a Real Disease,” which was published in MedPage Today. Head was contacted for the article following her remarks at the Aug. 18-19 Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Advisory Committee meeting in Washington, D.C.
In the article, Head addressed the pressing need for greater awareness and understanding of the disease among healthcare professionals. “I can think of few things that would do more to lighten the burden for [ME/CFS] patients than to have every physician believe it’s real,” she said.
Head is also quoted extensively on her thoughts regarding the fundamental disconnect between the desperate need for more ME/CFS research dollars and the NIH funding process.
