An Update from #MEAction

#MEAction has been a leader in the fight for health equity for people with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis for the past six years, as led by our visionary co-founder and first executive director, Jen Brea, and then by our current executive director, Julia Miele, over the past year. Julia has helped our growing organization streamline our processes, begin our strategic plan, and expand our reach with the Long COVID community. 
 
With much gratitude for her contributions, we wanted to announce that Julia will be leaving #MEAction as she has accepted a position at another non-profit. On behalf of the global #MEAction community, we thank her for the leadership she provided over the past year.
 
Though we will miss working with Julia, we are absolutely thrilled that Laurie Jones, who has been with #MEAction since she ran the impact campaign for the Unrest film in 2017, will be stepping up to lead the organization on an interim basis. Laurie has been the Managing Director with #MEAction since 2018 and is eager to continue supporting this wonderful community. Now with millions more people developing Long COVID and meeting criteria for ME, it is more crucial than ever that we continue to grow and demand urgent action to this ever-growing crisis. We know that with the support of our donors, volunteers, fellow board members, and community members, we will continue to rise to the challenge. 
 
Sincerely,
 
Jill Hinson and Beth Mazur 
#MEAction Board Co-Chairs
