#MEAction’s Jaime Seltzer on Recent NIH Gathering

By David Tuller, DrPH

Last Tuesday and Wednesday (December 12th and 13th), the US National Institutes of Health–and, specifically, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases–held a two-day meeting called “Advancing ME/CFS Research: Identifying Targets for Intervention and Learning from Long COVID.” In 2019, I’d physically attended a similar NIH gathering; this time, I caught many of the presentations online instead. Jaime Seltzer, MEAction’s scientific director, was there in person. In an interview last Friday, she shared some of her impressions of the event.
