www.ProHealth.com • November 3, 2006


As announced by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on October 25, The National Public Awareness and Education Campaign for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) will be launched at a press conference on November 3 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. in the Holeman Lounge at The National Press Club, 529 14th St., NW, Washington, D.C. 20045. For information, the press is advised to contact the CDC Division of Media Relations, 404-639-3286, or Mike Greenwell of Fleishman Hillard at 404-739-0155. Those wishing to participate by phone may call 888-343-2169.

The campaign is being funded by the CDC and executed by the Chronic Fatigue and Immune Dysfunction Syndrome (CFIDS) Association of America.

Its purpose: to call attention to the CDC estimate that, of the Americans with CFS, only 20 percent have been diagnosed. The CDC “considers CFS to be a major public health concern and has committed to research that will lead to earlier diagnosis and better treatment of the illness.”

Featured at the launch will be:
n Julie Gerberding, director of the CDC.
n Anthony Komaroff, MD, professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and a leading CFS specialist and researcher.
n Nancy Klimas, MD, a practicing physician and principal investigator of the National Institute of Health's Center for Multidisciplinary Studies of CFS Pathophysiology at the University of Miami.
n And representatives from the CFIDS Association of America.
