CALL TO ACTION
It is estimated that 20 MILLION AMERICANS are stricken by NeuroEndocrineImmune Disorders such as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS)-myalgic encephalomyelitis or encephalopathy (ME), fibromyalgia (FM), Gulf War syndrome/illness (GWS-I), multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) and chronic Lyme disease (CLD).
The U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius states on her web page that “Our goals for all Americans is to live healthier, more prosperous, and more productive lives.” This is the same goal of P.A.N.D.O.R.A. for individuals stricken with NeuroEndocrineImmune Disorders, and yet for the past 7 years all of the recommendations o the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Advisory Committee has made to past and current U.S. Secretaries of Health have not been executed. Not a single ONE recommendation has been put in place. Why not?

Join in asking U.S. Secretary of Health to meet with P.A.N.D.O.R.A. & provide funding for the NEI Ce
Dear Secretary Sebelius,
In 2009, we requested a face-to-face meeting with your or with a senior staff to address the lack of substantial funding for NeuroEndocrineImmune disorders (NEIDs). We also asked you to direct the National Institute of Health (NIH) & the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to provide short & long-term research funding for CFS-ME, fibromyalgia, Gulf War syndrome, multiple chemical sensitivity & chronic Lyme disease. Your office has unfortunately ignored our request for a face-to-face meeting and so far no response on the funding for chronic fatigue syndrome and related neuroendocrineimmune disorders has been forwarded to our organization.
Therefore we respectfully ask you to meet with P.A.N.D.O.R.A.’s representatives and with our partners representing our major stakeholders- millions of Americans ,who for far too long have endured a lack of quality of life due to chronic fatigue syndrome, also known as myalgic encephalomyelitiis, often due also to the overlapping with other related chronic NeuroEndocrineImmune Disorders (NEIDs).
We ask for aggressive allocation of resources for NEIDs. We also ask that you ensure substantial funding is allocated to projects like the NeuroEndocrineImmune (NEI) Center(TM) and other similar facilities in the U.S It is also crucial that funding for physician training is provided through AHEC and other health agencies in partnership with community and patient advocacy organizations like P.A.N.D.O.R.A. and the NEI Center(TM). It is of utmost importance to ensure medical schools in the U.S. will partner with community and patient advocacy organizations on the task of educating their medical student, their academic professionals, and their current teaching medical faculty, as well as collaborating in much needed scientific research. No longer medical school staff can maintain such a bias against education for medical students and future researchers in the scientific field of NeuroEndocrineImmune Disorders.
Thank you for your attention to this matter.
