A new perspective spotlight article has just been posted on the Jackson Laboratory website about Courtney Gunter, the JAX ME/CFS Collaborative Research Center’s Program Manager. Courtney was interviewed to learn more about her role at the Center, including how she became interested in ME/CFS research, why the JAXMECFS blog was started, and what it’s like to run it. The interview also covers what her thoughts are on the current state of the ME/CFS field, and which blog posts were her favorite to write.
Dr. Lucinda Bateman of Bateman Horne Center has recently helped create free online Continuing Medical Education (CME) programs about ME/CFS for medical providers, and they’re now available. These projects were the result of collaborations with the CDC and Medscape, and with the Michigan State Medical Society web page and PANDORA, a group of patient advocates. BHC is dedicated to improving education about ME/CFS for medical providers, which is critical for both patients and for research initiatives, and these CMEs are just one effort they’re focusing on to increase the number of informed providers.
