Dear Friend: 

We are proud to announce the establishment of The IACFS/ME Research Fund. Our goal is to raise $1,000,000 from those directly concerned with, or affected by, ME/CFS.  

You are cordially invited to the attend the launching of this important new international initiative in ME/CFS research at a Donors’ Reception on Friday, March 13th at 7pm at the Nevada Museum of Art in Reno, Nevada. The reception is generously sponsored by the Whittemore-Peterson Institute.    

Our March 13th Donors’ Reception is expected to be a gala event with a number of high profile physicians and researchers, including governor John A. Kitzhaber, MD of Oregon (1995-2003), the originator of the groundbreaking Oregon Health Plan.    

The Donor's Reception will be just one part of our 9th International IACFS/ME Research and Clinical Conference to be held in Reno from March 12-15th at the Peppermill Resort Hotel.   

The program will include the latest advances in virology, genetics, pediatrics, brain functioning, epidemiology, treatment and assessment.  We have scheduled invited talks for a number of prominent medical research scientists, including Dan Peterson, M.D., Leonard Jason, Ph.D., Jonathan R. Kerr, M.D., Ph.D., and Birgitta Evengard, M.D., Ph.D.   

The conference will also include a Patient Conference featuring a number of internationally prominent medical research scientists including Nancy Klimas, M.D., Anthony Komaroff, M.D., and Hirohito Kuratsune, M.D., among others.  

We hope that you complete and submit the invitation below for our Donors’ Reception.   If you are unable to attend, please send a contribution, in any amount to help fund this important research initiative into the causation, persistence and treatment of ME/CFS.
