|Thank the news directors for such excellent coverage!
On Wednesday, November 8, NBC affiliate WHEC 10News in Rochester, N.Y., aired a remarkable segment about CFS and the awareness campaign press conference held November 3. Reporter Jennifer Johnson attended the event, conducting interviews there and in the local community with CFS patients and expert clinician Dr. David Bell. In the story that aired, Jennifer also shares her own story of having CFS for 5 years beginning in high school when she was an honor student and varsity athlete. It includes highlights from the press event and clips of the public service announcement sent to 800 TV stations across the country.
