The Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Advisory Committee (CFSAC), which is an official advisory committee within the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), held its spring two day conference on May 10 -11, 2011. The committee has been meeting twice a year to review multiple issues related to ME/CFS (i.e., research updates, educational issues, healthcare, diagnosis, treatment, progress and setbacks) and make recommendations accordingly. Massachusetts CFIDS/ME & FM Association has prepared a summary of the highlights of the meeting.  The videocast is also available for viewing.
