#MEAction’s Postcards to Doctors is an Unprecedented Success!

#MEAction’s Postcards to Doctors initiative has been successful beyond our wildest hopes!  Since August 1, we’ve received requests for more than 3,500 postcards from hundreds of individuals and groups.  People from all over the United States have signed up to write to their clinicians asking them to take #MEAction’s CME program – we’ve sent out over 1,400 addresses!  

In order to catch up to this unprecedented response, we’re putting Postcards on hold through the month of September.  

  • If you’ve already sent for addresses and postcards, don’t worry — we’re going to keep working on the orders we’ve already received, and you should get your addresses and postcards this September!  
  • If you haven’t participated in the Postcards initiative, yet, you haven’t missed out on your chance: visit #MEAction for the Postcards re-launch on October 1, when we’ll also be showcasing the art of one of our postcard designers, Lia Pas.  

If you have any additional questions, you can send them to [email protected].

So far we’ve sent postcards to metros like New York City, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, to rural towns in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Maryland; and we’ve ensured our reach is to diverse neighborhoods with historically underserved populations, so that anyone can get diagnosed and treated for ME no matter their background.

It never ceases to amaze me how our community steps up where there is a clear need and puts their collective shoulders to the wheel.  We all have limited energy, but we know — maybe better than healthy individuals, sometimes — where to spend that energy. You’ve spoken with one voice that clinical education is important to you, and we’ll keep fighting for clinical understanding and better care.  

You inspire me so much!  I’ll be thinking of all of you next week at the Stanford conference, and holding that fighting spirit close.

Sincerely,

Jaime
