Patients and patient reps meet with the CIHR's new Director at 2018 Montreal Conference


Our Society joined patients and patient in a meeting with the CIHR's new Director, Institute Muskuloskelatal Health and Athritis, Dr. Karim Khan, to discuss the future of research funding for ME.


Dr. Khan made it very clear that he knows the illness is real and serious, and that much more has to be done to help patients. He has committed to creating a CIHR video confirming that the CIHR validates the biological nature and seriousness of ME to share with health care and research communities. He has also committed to prioritising the ME file to figure out how best to increase capacity and funding. We came out of the meeting feeling like we have a real ally.


The meeting was exceptionally positive, and we look forward to working with Dr. Khan in the future.
