It would be appropriate for your committee to do something concrete about ME / CFS and combat the psych thrust.

I suggest a strong letter to the Royal Society of Medicine in London regarding their forthcoming meeting on ME /CFS, protesting their emphasis on the psychiatric relationships in the disease. The speakers are primarily speaking on psychiatric and psychological diagnosis and treatment .

This is a Medical meeting of the Royal Society of MEDICINE. I know that your committee dwells on important matters viz “…on whether it is an -itis or an -opathy”  but here is an opportunity to do something important for our community of patients and researchers.

Dr Derek Enlander, M.D.,M.R.C.S., L.R.C.P. (Lon)

Dr Enlander will be amongst the speakers at the
