Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Advisory Committee Meeting (Day 1)

The videocast of Day 1 of the CFSAC meeting which took place on 27 May, Washington DC, is now available.  You will need RealPlayer to view this videocast which is world accessible.

The broadcast covers the entire proceedings of Day 1 and is 06:57:55 long but you can dip in and out (Agenda below). Video and audio quality is generally good and there are simultaneous subtitles but no signing.

I will add the videocast for Day 2 of proceedings to this page when it becomes available.

Transcripts of testimonies from patients, carers and medical professionals will eventually be archived on a website and I will flag up the URL when this has been issued.
