One comment on “TWiV 330: A swinging gate

  1. Vincent, Dickson, Alan, Rich and Kathy, Regarding TWiv 330 ((12:57 to 29:10) you have gone beyond expectations by continuing the discussion on the topic of ME/CFS. Incorporating a reading of the letter written to you by fellow patient and advocate Jennifer Spotila regarding TWiV 329 was admirable. This patient and advocate community is grateful to you all for this conversation and the opportunity to spread greater awareness about this disease and its unfortunate political and medical standing. Thank you, Claudia Goodell, MS
