It's Not Too Late for Virtual Lobby Day!
Advocacy Alert: 5/18/2007
The CFIDS Association of America's 4th Annual Lobby Day is still under way!
Five easy-to-complete activities are available at http://capwiz.com/cfids/home/. In the past week, advocates have sent 4,445 messages to legislators, policymakers and the media about the need for increased funding for and attention to CFS.
In 30 minutes or less, you can write to the 3 members of Congress who represent you (Action #1), your local media (Action #2), CDC Director Dr. Julie Gerberding (Action #3), NIH Director Dr. Elias Zerhouni (Action #4) and the Secretary for Health and Assistant Secretary for Health (Action #5).
There is power in numbers. Let's flex our advocacy muscle!
Thank you for participating in CFIDS advocacy!

P.S. The federal CFS Advisory Committee met in Washington, D.C., on May 16-17; our summary of the meeting will be circulated in the next few days.
