Nice! Collins by doing this is validating ME/CFS for the people working at the NIH - this blog is aimed at them. I particularly like this last part- how often does the Director of the NIH publicly agree that a disease has been underserved?
We recognize and empathize with the suffering experienced by people with ME/CFS and their frustration that so little is known and so little research has been done to find answers. We aim to change that. The NIH is committed to unraveling the underlying biologic cause(s) of ME/CFS as swiftly as possible, and promoting research that will inform the development of effective strategies for treatment and prevention of this devastating condition.
