"I volunteer for IACFSME to provide infrastructural support for a space for scientific and clinical professionals to come together and share knowledge and ideas. Throughout scientific history, groundbreaking ideas and collaborations emerge when individuals discuss their domains of focus, and facilitating such dynamic dialogue is critically needed in ME/CFS to enable breakthroughs and grow the field." - Rochelle Joslyn, PhD
