MEDIA ALERT: Radio & newspaper coverage of CFS
Advocacy Alert: 6/01/2007
CFS and the upcoming educational events in Houston are getting local press!
Writer Cynthia Lescalleet profiles CFS patient Jane Mostowitz in an article that serves as a “CFS 101” course for readers of the Examiner newspapers in Belleaire, Memorial, River Oaks and West University. In “When rest isn’t restful: Chronic fatigue, ‘constant recuperation’,” Lescalleet describes the illness and potential causes, and includes quotes from Association president Kimberly McCleary and local chiropractor Dr. Paul Breeding. The article includes a sidebar of symptoms and information about the upcoming “kNOw MORE” seminar and photo exhibit. (5/30/07) You can read it at:
