    Why bother? They are worthless.

    Nothing whatsoever positive has happened since their May meeting, and they
    were lambasted back and forth, by me especially.

    They have accomplished nothing in their years of service. One would think
    that they would have insisted on a face-to-face meeting with the head of the DHHS by
    now, but they are just a self-perpetuating loser.

    Someone from the WPI should be appointed; at least they are working
    towards getting results, not words.

    I keep giving up on this board, but you and aunttammie and khaylal

    I'm so frustrated by the CDC and the CFSAC I can't tell you without
    swearing, so I'll forgo that, ok? LOL...

    BTW, anyone heard from Khalyal?
    Probably spelled that wrong on one of these..ooops!

    K., if you're around, check the heck in, will ya?

    Input on CDC CFS Strategic Research Plan

    Between April 15 and July 30, 2009, CDC received just over 1,000 e-mails in
    response to a request for input to its 5-year CFS strategic plan. Most of
    the e-mails utilized material from the CFIDS Association of America’s Web
    site or supported CFIDS recommendations, reflecting the effectiveness of
    CFIDS advocacy efforts. We greatly appreciate this overwhelming response,
    since it provided an opportunity for members of the CFS community to share
    their concerns.

    Some emails from the general public provided comments specific to the
    strategic research plan and we also received comments on the strategic plan
    from two scientific societies (the International Association for Chronic
    Fatigue Syndrome, and the American Academy of Environmental Medicine),
    scientific investigators, health care providers, and patient advocacy groups
    (CFIDS Association of America, Pandora, Connecticut CFIDS & FM Association,
    National Women´s Health Network, Rocky Mountain CFIDS/FMS Association,
    Phoenix Rising, Wisconsin ME/CFS Association, Share Care & Prayer, CFSActs,
    National CFIDS Foundation, Invest in ME - UK).

    CDC´s CFS research program is currently categorizing comments concerning the
    strategic plan into specific subject areas.
