The Pediatric and Adolescent ME/CFS Primer team is aiming to complete the new Primer by mid-October, 2016.
A Primer is a document that catches clinicians up to speed with the current research and medical practices that are related to ME/CFS. Here’s a link to the version from 2012-2014.
As was done for the adult ME/CFS Primer, the team would appreciate having original artwork for the cover of the Pediatric and Adolescent ME/CFS Primer, with a brief biography of the artist inside. By so doing, they hope to convey that this illness affects children who otherwise aspire to lead normal and healthy lives.
Artwork should be submitted as an email attachment sent to [email protected] . The restriction is that the artist must be a ME/CFS patient falling within the pediatric/adolescent age population — up to 18 years of age. Deadline – June 30.
National ME/FM Action Network, Canada
