Pat LaRosa and the NJCFSA are one of the best organizations around. They bring education to schools and school nurses to educate them about pediatric ME/CFS. Our organization, PANDORA Org, has worked closely with NJCFSA on a 2 year project asking FDA for a stakeholder meeting for drug development. We were successful in landing the first Patient Focused meeting in spring of 2013. We continue to push for FDA treatments for ME/CFS.
