10th International Congress on Behavioural Medicine: CFS presentations

CFS related presentations at the 10th International Congress on Behavioural Medicine, Japan

Tom Kindlon, Information Officer, Irish ME/CFS Association has highlighted via the Co-Cure e-list CFS related presentations at a recent congress on Behavioural Medicine, held in Japan, in September.

Tom writes:

“This conference, on August 27-30, 2008 in Japan was just a few days before the International Conference on Fatigue Science (September 3-5), September 3-5 which was co-sponsored by the IACFS and the CAA.  As one can see, the CDC’s CFS team (amongst others) presented at it.  Why did they not present at the International Conference on Fatigue Science?”
