Fall 2013 We'll B There 4 U!
Starting in the summer of 2013, we set out to represent patients at important meetings in Washington D.C. Our We'll B There 4 U! fundraiser was to help with travel and lodging cost of the October 4-10 trip. We attended the inaugural PALTAD workshop with at least 19 other Lyme disease organizations and groups. We also participated in the Institute of Medicine Assessing Health Professional Education forum. While in D.C., we met with a Gulf War illness and ME/CFS advocate and a Lyme doctor. While at the IOM, we learned the process for the new ME/CFS Definition committee contract.
