New York City ME/CFS recruitment has begun

The Weill Cornell Medical Center is recruiting individuals between the ages of 21-65 whose doctor has found no cause for their severe fatigue. Please contact Xiangling Mao by phone at (212) 746-2632 or email at xim2004@med.cornell.edu for more information about the study and to determine if you are eligible.

Study participation includes a visit to the study physician’s office to fill out a questionnaire on physical and mental health, and a medical examination. If deemed eligible, a visit to Weill Cornell Medicine includes a questionnaire, magnetic brain imaging (MRI), blood draws, urine tests, a cardiopulmonary exercise test (CPET) and positron emission tomography scan (PET). Participants will be compensated for their time.

Please see the NYC -Recruitment-Flyer for additional details, and share it with others who are able to travel to the site if they are deemed eligible.
