Photo Exhibit Heads West this Month
Adrianne Ryan is one of eight CFS patients featured in the “Faces of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome” photo exhibit traveling the country.
The traveling photo exhibit, “The Faces of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome” is making its way west this September. If you live or work in the Los Angeles, or Dallas, (Texas) areas, don’t miss these opportunities to see the exhibit while it’s at these venues:
- September 6 – 9 in Sherman Oaks, California.
Westfield Fashion Square, 14006 Riverside Dr. The exhibit will be displayed in front of Pottery Barn.
- September 24 – 30 in Dallas, Texas
The J. Erik Jonsson Central Branch of the Dallas Public Library, 1515 Young St. See the exhibit on the first floor.
Both these events are open to the public and include free informational brochures.
Media interest surrounding the exhibit in Los Angeles has been steady. The Los Angeles Fox affiliate KTTV (Channel 11) featured the upcoming exhibit and local resident and CFS patient Kristy Romero on its Emmy-winning “Midday Sunday” public affairs program on August 19. The L.A. Watts Times newspaper ran a short article about CFS and the exhibit in its “The Pulse” health column on August 23. And Dr. Cynthia Watson of the Watson Wellness Clinic in Santa Monica will be a featured guest on a segment of Baxter in the Morning, the morning drivetime show on KCAA-AM 1050, on September 7 at 7:15 a.m.
Stories about CFS and Los Angeles-area patients are in the works with several other media outlets. We’ll keep you posted through alerts from the Grassroots Action Center when publication and/or air dates are confirmed!
