The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) will hold its first meeting for the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Advisory Committee (CFSAC) on September 29, 2003. DHHS has contacted all individuals who were chosen to serve on the committee; however, no formal announcement has been made yet regarding membership of the committee.
