Back to: Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Advisory Committee  UPDATE: November 2006  
by Kenneth J. Friedman, Ph.D.

U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services:

It has come to my attention that the recommendations of the Chronic
Fatigue Syndrome Action Committee (CFSAC) have not been responded to adequately by the Department of Health and Human Services, that
committee vacancies have been left unfilled, that the number of annual
meetings has been reduced to two, that there is no permanent Executive
Secretary, and that production and posting of Advisory Committee minutes is sluggish at best. I request that these disruptions be rectified and that the original course of action for this committee be restored.
I will share this message with my congressional representatives.

Thank you.

ut and paste the above sample letter, and/or write your own, and:
 e-mail  U.S. Secretary of Health & Human Services  e-mail
Then the Vermont Congressional Delegation,
and/or your own.
And please, ask the same of your family and friends
Years of work are at stake.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Advisory Committee (CFSAC),
