PACE authors reemerge and defend CBT and GET regimen as "evidence-based" (!!!)

October 24, 2021

With seven days left, this month's campaign has reached two-thirds of the goal! 

Even as UK's NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) prepares to publish its new ME/CFS guidelines, the PACE authors are defending CBT and GET as "evidence-based" in a new paper. So despite some progress, there is still lots of work to be done! 

Thanks to all past and current donors. Here is the link to support the project:

Yet another message about this month's crowdfunding campaign...

October 21, 2021

With ten days left, this month's campaign has reached 56 % of the goal. The project focuses on ME, CFS, ME/CFS, so-called "medically unexplained symptoms," and related issues--and on exposing poor quality research in these domains. Just this week, UK's NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) announced that it would publish its new ME/CFS guidelines! So some progress has been made...

Thanks to all of you, the crowdfunding goal was reached!!

November 05, 2020

Dear all--

 

Given the difficult times we're all experiencing on multiple fronts, I'm really touched by the support i've received this time around. I've got lots of things to look into going forward.

 

This week, I haven't done much besides obsessively tracking the US election returns. In the worst case scenario, I was preparing to join the resistance in the woods around the Berkeley campus but that seems like it won't be necessary at this point.

 

Thanks again!--David
