OUR MISSION STATEMENT

The American ME and CFS Society is dedicated to serving the needs of patients and caregivers through support, advocacy, and education. We seek to channel patient perspectives to government agencies, committees and initiatives, and to unify the ME and CFS community by pursuing the common goals of expanding research, increasing knowledge about treating the disease, and educating health care professionals to help them make a timely diagnosis and alleviate the suffering of patients.

IN THE SPOTLIGHT

Linda Tannenbaum Worldwide Tour Talk

As a part of the 2017 End ME/CFS Worldwide Tour, Linda Tannenbaum, CEO/President, spoke in six European countries and seven U.S. cities. Each visit included a presentation, Q & A session, and personal meet and greet. On the tour, Linda had the honor of meeting hundreds of patients, parents and caregivers. Each has a unique story and truly inspires us.

Linda’s talks were about the ground-breaking research OMF is supporting, as well as the research of several of our collaborators. Several of her talks were recorded along the way and we thank all of our team OMF volunteers for doing so. Linda’s recent talk in New York City on November 1, 2017 was recorded, edited and is presented here. Thank you to fellow parent, Stephen Appelbaum, for helping OMF on behalf of his daughter Carly Appelbaum Goldberg. Volunteers like Stephen are helping OMF to spread our message of hope. We thank you all.

Linda’s presentation is now available for you to view. We invite you to watch Linda’s talk to learn more about the research OMF is funding and facilitating and the impact we are having on open and collaborative global research.
