- Oral (in person, by phone or DVD) public comment provided at CFSAC can be no more than 5 minutes long. If your written public comment is longer than that, you may submit it and it will be entered into the public record, but oral public comment can be NO MORE than 5 minutes in length.

- ME/CFS is a very isolating illness. Your public comment can include how many other young people you know with ME/CFS, how you have been treated by others (parents, schools, medical professionals, friends, etc.)
- We can connect with you with a mentor to help you craft your public comment. Please let us know ASAP via email if you want to be connected with a mentor.
