Medical Humanities Network: Networking Lunch with Dr. David Tuller : PACE trial on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome on trial! Other events...
David Tuller is a Senior Fellow in Public Health and Journalism at the Center of Global Public Health, School of Public Health, University of California, Berkeley, California. Previous to this he was academic coordinator of the University of California, Berkeley's joint masters program in public health and journalism. He has worked as a reporter and editor for ten years at the San Francisco Chronicle, served as health editor at Salon.com and frequently writes about health for The New York Times. David will be discussing his work as a journalist in public health and especially in covering the PACE trial on myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) for The New York Times as health editor. This trial advocating cognitive behavioural therapy and graded exercise dominates clinical policy for this condition in many countries. However Davidís concerns over the results of the trial have led him to further investigate the study and to become an outspoken advocate for patients with ME/CFS.
