We’re moving into a prime advocacy period. This is the second of a series of blogs on advocacy that are going to appear over the next month. The first focused on the big advocacy event of the year – the Solve ME/CFS Initiative’s Lobby Day. If you’re in the U.S. and are going to participate in one advocacy effort this year, make it that one. Registration for Lobby Day is still open!
