Fox News Picks up on Davis / Dafoe / OMF Research Story

As is often the case, big news starts in the print news media and is then picked up by broadcasting news. Citing stories in The Atlantic and Washington Post, Fox News did a short online text piece highlighting our ME / CFS Scientific Advisory Board director, Ronald W. Davis, PhD, and the struggles of his son, Whitney Dafoe.

This reporter took a very strong statement from a presentation given at the National Academy of Medicine (formerly Institute of Medicine) ME / CFS report release meeting. It strikes down the many misconceptions both doctors and the public have about the disease.

You may wonder what you can do to increase such news media coverage. Primarily, comment and share these articles, particularly using the share buttons on the bottom of the piece’s page. They keep up with what creates more interest and will be likely to cover the topic even more if they see lots of shares and comments.
