Maryland is a newly formed chapter initiated by Melinda Lipscomb and Whitney Fox inspired by efforts both have made in advocacy on the Federal level with Congressional members and staff as well as the #NotEnough4ME campaign at the NIH. We are looking to expand the grass-roots efforts at our State level by outreach and building our local community, including caregivers and much needed allies.
Starting as State Co-Chairs to lead this effort and guide to creating a successful chapter, Melinda & Whitney are looking for other persons with ME (pwme), caregivers and allies who have an interest in seeing ME as widely and easily known and recognized as other illnesses and diseases, to advocate for funding, research and clinical care for the tens of thousands of Marylanders affected by Myalgic Encephalomyelitis.
Monthly planning meeting – We meet the first Tuesday of the Month at 7pm ET.
Monthly community support meeting – We meet the third Tuesday of the Month at 1pm ET.
