Announcement: The IACFS/ME has put out a call for young artist to submit their artwork for their cover art contest related to a new Primer for pediatric ME/CFS.
The International Association for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (IACFS/ME) is inviting young artists currently diagnosed with or recovered from ME/CFS, age 17 and younger, to submit artwork for their cover art contest. The artwork may be selected for the cover of their new Primer for doctors looking after young people with ME/CFS. The IACFS/ME wishes to showcase the artwork of a young patient with ME/CFS in order to demonstrate that although seriously ill, these young patients are still capable of great accomplishments.
The new Primer will assist pediatricians and primary care physicians in the diagnosis and management of ME/CFS in children and young adults.
Further information and an application form can be obtained from Dr. Kenneth J. Friedman at [email protected]
Contest closing date is June 30, 2016.
If you are an artist – for fun or therapy – we also invite you to submit your art and a brief story about it to the Bateman Horne Center Patient Voice. We may feature your art and your story on our blog!
