Media Alert: CFS makes the news on August 3
Advocacy Alert: 8/2/2007
Watch and listen for news about CFS and the national traveling photo exhibit’s display at Penn Station in New York City! Two opportunities to learn more about both are scheduled for tomorrow evening, Friday, August 3:
- Watch New York NBC affiliate (Channel 4) WNBC’s 5:30 p.m. newscast for a story about CFS.
- Listen to "Health in 30" on WRCR-AM 1300 (and streaming live online at www.wrcr.com). Host and producer Barbara Ficarra, RN, will discuss CFS and provide information about "The Faces of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome" photo exhibit at the end of the show, which airs live every Friday from 5:30 p.m.-6:00 p.m. EST.
The traveling CFS photo exhibit, "The Faces of CFS," will be displayed on Amtrak’s main concourse within Pennsylvania Station, located at 7th Avenue and West 31st Street (directly below Madison Square Garden), from August 6-13.
If you haven't seen it already, your "local" daily newspaper, the New York Times, published an article about CFS in its July 17 Science section, titled "Chronic fatigue no longer seen as 'yuppie flu.'" You can link to it at http://www.nytimes.com/2007/07/17/science/17fatigue.html?_r=2&ref=science&oref=slogin&oref=slogin (free login may be required).
Please share this news with area family and friends! We will keep you informed of additional media as we confirm coverage with reporters. We hope you will see the exhibit during its one-week stay in this prominent Manhattan venue.
