Importantly, after some CDC "update" comments, the call (we can listen only & CDC will not record it) will feature:

• 20 minutes of comments by Dr. Lenny Jason, on the need to identify similar patients for ME/CFS studies and trials

• 5 minutes for Dr. Jason to address questions submitted by email to him (submit yours now to CFSPCOCACall@cdc.gov)

• 10 minutes for the CDC (presumably Dr. Unger) to address questions emailed to CDC (submit yours now to CFSPCOCACall@cdc.gov)
