Extended deadline – Attend the NIH Conference with a Scholarship from #MEAction!

#MEAction is currently accepting applications from medical students and practicing medical professionals to attend the National Institutes of Health meeting on myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) research on April 4th-5th, 2019 in Bethesda, MD. The application is now due at 5 p.m. EST on Tuesday, February 26th.

The goal of the meeting is to showcase high-quality studies to better understand the state of the science of ME, and to help drive the field forward by identifying gaps and opportunities. Read more.

Please take a moment to invite your health care providers – and any promising medical students you may know – to apply for the scholarship, and to attend the conference! This is a great opportunity to educate our doctors, nurse practitioners, physicians assistants and osteopathic doctors about ME, and to grow informed champions for this disease in the medical profession.

Before you apply, please visit the NIH event page to register.
