CFS Photo Exhibit Travels to Salt Lake City and Sacramento
The CFS photo exhibit, “The Faces of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome,” travels next to the Salt Lake City Main Library from October 4-7. The exhibit will be hosted by the Organization for Fatigue and Fibromyalgia Education and Research (OFFER) as part of a special CFS awareness event in Salt Lake City from October 4-7.
Kimberly McCleary, CEO and president of the CFIDS Association of America, will speak at an OFFER education meeting October 4 at 7:00 p.m. at the Salt Lake City County Complex. The following day, I Remember Me and Tell Me Where It Hurts, both documentary films about CFS and FM, will be shown at the Main Library, where the photo exhibit will be housed for a four-day run. The photo exhibit, meeting and film screenings are all free to the public. Visit OFFER's news page for details.
The exhibit will then move on to Sacramento at the end of the month. Here participants in the Association’s kNOw MORE CFS educational seminar on October 28 will see the exhibit at the event, which will be held in the Ose Community Room at KVIE Public Television at 2595 Capitol Oaks Drive in Sacramento. For more information on the kNOw MORE seminar and how to register, e-mail email@example.com or call 704-365-2343.
The exhibit features the faces and stories of eight CFS patients and two health care professionals who treat the illness. Through the use of huge, striking portraits taken by famed fashion and celebrity photographer George Lange—and the accompanying first-person quotes—the exhibit delivers important information about this debilitating illness.
