Here's what The National ME/FM Action Network does (from their website http://www.mefmaction.com ) The NATIONAL ME/FM ACTION NETWORK became a Canadian charitable organization on June 18, 1993 dedicated to Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) and Fibromyalgia (FM) through support, advocacy, education and research. Since its founding, the organization has been an ACTION Network. Some of our accomplishments are
Providing knowledge and empowerment to the people who need information and help
Establishing relationships with both the provincial and Canadian governments in Canada to better the lives of people ill with ME/CFS and FM
Developing contacts with medical and legal professionals
Working with National and International Support Groups
Publishing a quarterly newsletter keeping people informed about the progress in research and related matters
Spearheading the development of the Consensus Documents, known as the Canadian Definitions
Resource guides for disability matters
TEACH-ME guide for Teachers and Parents of children and youth with ME/CFS and FM
The NATIONAL ME/FM ACTION NETWORK hosted the 10th International IACFS/ME research and clinical conference for ME/CFS and FM and related illnesses in Ottawa from September 22nd to 25th, 2011 consisting of professional workshops and meetings as well as a one-day meeting for the general public.
