How we know Dr. Rowe

Elly and several people our suppport group met Dr. Rowe while participating in the research in 1994 looking at adults with CFS and Orthostatic Intolerance for the first time at Hopkins. 

Many of us and others have staying in contact with Dr. Rowe and followed his reearch and lectures and publications. 

We've shown a wonderful video of a presentation to a CFS group in Richmond at one of our NOVA meetings. That video has helped validate and instruct so many patients with Chronic Fatiuge Syndrome, FM, and similar conditions.

Some of our stories from the time in the studies, from the video can be read here:
