CFIDS in the news
HealthScoutNews, a daily on-line news source for health-related issues, published an article, Tired to the Max-And Then Some,” on March 16. The article is centered on finding a new name that reflects the scope of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). The CFIDS Association worked with the author, Linda Searing, providing information on the illness and arranging interviews with patients and medical professionals.
HealthScoutNews stories appear on health-related Web sites, in more than 40 newspapers worldwide each day and on television stations in four of the top 10 markets.
