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.

“People with chronic complex disease have been living with this for decades. Researchers have been studying this for decades,” Seltzer says. “We definitely need to make use of the path that we’ve beaten down over time and start basing our hypotheses off of what we’ve seen in these diseases with other labels.”

#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.
