Happy St. George’s Day! Jen Govey is fundraising for Invest in ME Research on JustGiving.

“A really good and productive meeting was held this morning. Great insights into the need for certain research projects – and a good deal of discussion around possible future Covid-19 effects. We just need the funding – but huge potential.” Invest in ME Research
The cohorts of cruise ships were also discussed by the EMERG steering group members at the February meeting in Amsterdam as a good opportunity to study how many people go on to develop ME after COVID19.

Congratulations to Sheffield ME & Fibromyalgia Group for hosting an excellent meeting with Professor Simon Carding live on Facebook and also uploaded to YouTube. Reminder that the February public meeting talks at Quadram Institute are here. Thanks everyone supporting Invest in ME Research in this groundbreaking research and Centre of Excellence for ME.

Mike Harley of Mike’s EU Marathons for Invest in ME Research chatting with Mark Openshaw about European Marathons.

We are postponing our Walk for ME until later in the year. Particularly as we are parents/carers friends & family members of people with ME, or have ME, we need to reduce our risk as much as we can. We will most definitely still be doing the walk! Any donations are still massively appreciated!!! Thank you 💙💙💙
Team participants: Claire Carter, Bryony Richardson, Janet Jones, Vicky Pierce, Suzi Izus, Liz Wilford, Emma Sandham, Katie Sharp, Charlotte Etchingham, Caroline Fricker, Rachel Osborne. Read more/donate…
