“There may be no known cure for these conditions, but there are many means to improving quality of life…. I encourage my patients to follow Bruce Campbell’s advice."
- Charles W. Lapp, MD, Director of the Hunter-Hopkins Center, Charlotte, NC
The CFIDS & Fibromyalgia Self-Help Program is still accepting signups (through Sep 1) for the fall 2008 session of its e-mail Self-Help Course, created by Bruce Campbell, PhD. (The next class will start in January 2009.)
