Wouldn't it be great to have patient advocate Jeannette Burmeister on the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Advisory Committee? On her blog, she's been a fierce advocate and takes no prisoners when it comes to the government's mishandling of ME. She's been nominated already by patient advocates John Herd and Eileen Holderman. Holderman fought the good fight on CFSAC; her tenure expires in the spring.
Now patients could certainly use another strong patient advocate. If you'd like to shower Burmeister with the support she's earned, email CFSAC@HHS.gov and tell the agency.
