One of the missions of our clinical core at Bateman Horne Center (BHC) in Salt Lake City, UT is to educate patients, doctors, and researchers about ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia (FM). In honor of Dr. Lucinda Bateman’s birthday on November 9th, BHC has launched a digital patient education series. The purpose of this series is to help patients learn more about different aspects of ME/CFS so that they can take these principles to their primary care providers (PCPs).
The video series will cover fundamental issues in ME/CFS through six videos, released weekly for six weeks, and include topics such as getting the right diagnosis, cognitive impairment, restorative sleep, and others. After signing up, a link will be sent by email to allow access to the videos. The second video will be released on November 16th, and will cover “Activity Intolerance and Post-Exertional Malaise (PEM).”
