NPR Features #MEAction in Series about Long COVID

NPR featured #MEAction in an article about long COVID called, “For patients with long COVID, chronic fatigue syndrome may offer a guiding star.” 

MEAction’s Director of Scientific and Medical Outreach, Jaime Seltzer, speaks about how long COVID researchers and doctors must learn from the ME/CFS community.

#MEAction was also featured in an All Things Considered interview last week as part of the same reporting series. #MEAction is pleased that the media is responding to our press outreach, and including ME/CFS in the conversation about long COVID to deepen our understanding about both conditions, and what is needed to move these fields forward.
