A Conversation with David Tuller, Nov. 3 2018
Massachusetts ME/CFS & FM Association Annual Meeting and Conference.
Open to the public.
A conversation with David Tuller, Dr. of Public Health and investigative journalist
Investigative journalist David Tuller is playing a leading role in a global effort to re-examine PACE, the largest clinical trial on ME/CFS. PACE wrongly psychologizes a physical disease and thus causes great harm to the 24+ million people with ME/CFS around the world. David will also discuss his experience as a journalist covering the huge yet underreported story of this disease.
Dr. Tuller has been writing since 2015 about the controversial PACE study, which purported to "prove" that Graded Exercise Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy could cure ME/CFS. Top researchers who have reviewed the study say it is fraught with indefensible methodological problems. Dr. Tuller, building on the work of ME/CFS advocates and researchers, exposed these flaws in a series of carefully researched articles. In addition to his work on PACE, Dr. Tuller has written articles about ME/CFS for the New York Times and other publications.
Learn first-hand how journalism can advance science and public awareness of a devastating disease.
