Source: C-ACT Notice from The CFIDS Association of America
This week the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has been contacting selected nominees to the CFS Advisory Committee (CFSAC) in preparation for the committee's first meeting. No formal announcement has been made yet regarding the date of the meeting or membership of the committee. The CFIDS Association is hopeful that this committee will help fill the void in coordination of federal activities and oversight of agency CFS programs that has occurred since the preceding CFS Coordinating Committee met last in January 2001.
The CFIDS Association will relay details about the committee and its first meeting as quickly as that information becomes available.
As always, the Association remains committed to ensuring that the new committee reflects the appropriate experience and representation of all stakeholders in CFIDS issues.
