May Momentum Launches TODAY!

May Momentum Launches TODAY! 

Today, May 1, 2022, marks the first day of our annual May Momentum campaign! In recognition of May ME/CFS Awareness month, this campaign is a special effort by OMF to increase awareness of multi-system chronic complex diseases (msCCD) and energize fundraising efforts.

This year we are excited to announce a new webcast series, “May Momentum Tuesdays,” to update you on the progress of the OMF Collaborative Research Network!

Every Tuesday during May, we will be sharing new, exclusive video interviews with Directors of the OMF Collaborative Research Centers (CRC)s. Don’t miss out! Videos will be uploaded to YouTube, our website, and shared via e-newsletter every Tuesday in May. These recordings will remain available to watch at your convenience.
