New Web-Based Television Program Ensures Coverage of ME/CFS Developments

Linda Gasparello of White House Chronicle reports in her June 7, 2011 article that there is a new web-based television program which will help draw attention to ME/CFS.

The program is called ME/CFS Alert and can be accessed on the YouTube Channel MECFSAlert. It was created by Llewellyn King, a Washington columnist, executive producer and host of White House Chronicle, and Deborah Waroff, a New York author and security analyst who has suffered from the illness for 22 years.

Waroff says that the program has three main objectives:

  • To comfort the suffering,
  • To change attitudes among physicians and medical institution,  and
  • To implore the government to provide critically needed research funds.

Episode 1, parts 1 & 2, is an interview with ME/CFS doctor Derek Enlander.

Episode 2 presents Llewellyn King talking about the ramifications of ME/CFS not getting enough federal funding. Thank you Llewellyn for standing up for us and telling it like it is! Episode 2 embedding has been disabled. Just click here to watch it.
