Newspaper article about "The Faces of CFS" in Boston
Advocacy Alert: 7/11/2007
Mansfield resident Meaghan Peterson is the focus of a section cover story about CFS in this past Sunday's Sun-Chronicle. You can read the article at http://www.thesunchronicle.com/articles/2007/07/08/features/feature50.txt.
We hope you will be able to see the "Faces of CFS" exhibit while it's on display at the central branch of the Boston Public Library at 700 Boylston Street in Copley Square, Boston. From July 16-23 it will be in the Rabb Lecture Hall lobby on the lower level of the Johnson Building. More information about the Central Library, including a map and directions, is available at http://www.bpl.org/central/index.htm.
The CFIDS Association's local media outreach to inform reporters about CFS and the exhibit has already begun, and the Sun-Chronicle story is the first to appear. Two other newspapers have confirmed coverage:
The Eagle-Tribune in Andover will feature CFS in the health pages of its Lifestyle section on Friday, July 13.
The Boston Globe will run a news item in its July 16 Health/Science calendar.
Please share this news with area family and friends! We will keep you informed of additional media as we confirm coverage with reporters. For more information about the exhibit and the national public awareness campaign, please visit http://www.cfids.org/sparkcfs/photo.asp.
