Following the tragic death of Robert Courtney, some of his friends created the tribute below, and provided the message that precedes it. We at #MEAction are pleased to reproduce both here. We, some of Bob’s many friends, have put together this tribute to him. We do not think it is appropriate to discuss the circumstances
Day: March 19, 2018
Urge your state health department to track myalgic encephalomyelitis/ chronic fatigue syndrome!
Call-to-Action: Please email your state health department and request they track ME/CFS (we have provided the email script for your convenience). A national conference will take place mid-April where states will decide which diseases to track as part of its Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS).
If government officials don’t track ME/CFS, how will they know that it is a problem!
