Phoenix Rising: February 2008

Wednesday 16 April 2008

CFS Phoenix Phoenix Rising is an informative newsletter put out monthly by American CFS suffererCort Johnsonon his website CFS Phoenix.

You can subscribe to the newsletter as well as download each issue.

The latest offering from Phoenix Rising is the February 2008 edition:

Phoenix Rising: February 2008 (external link)

Here is Cort’s introduction:

Welcome to the February edition of Phoenix Rising. In this edition (with a new format) we take a close look at an important event: the first theory paper on CFS by a senior Centers for Disease Control and Prevention researcher that I’m aware of. This paper suggests the CDC, for the first time, is confident enough about what they know about CFS to take a stab at explaining it. Given the CDC’s clout in the small ME/CFS research world this paper is worth looking at closely.

We also take advantage of the Dr. Reeve’s testimony during the last CFS Federal Advisory Committee Meeting to take a broad look at the most prominent CFS research program in existence.

We’ll roll into the big month of May with Dr. Friedman’s three-part interview; in Part I, Dr. Friedman, a past CFSAC member bluntly talks about the federal response to ME/CFS; in Part II he focuses on the research situation in CFS, in Part III: he talks about our progress in advocacy and what needs to be done.

Happy reading!

Cort
