    I'm involved in various awareness-raising initiatives aimed at both the general public and health/medical professionals so thought there might be something of interest in this. Unfortunately, I found very little of interest and I imagine most people could find better things to spend their time reading. But who knows, I'm open to correction.

    I'm not sure the data from this study really proves that material should be no longer than one page.

    The California Department of Public Health does not consider ME/CFS education a priority. Once they understood ME/CFS is not communicable or caused by an addiction, they really had no interest.

    Perhaps if ME/CFS were caused by climate change, they'd pay attention. :unsure:

    Edit: I was attempting to get the California Department of Public Health to provide ME/CFS educational materials similar to the New York State Department of Health.
