Colorado activist Jim Lutey has introduced a Rotary Club resolution to encourage research, education and funding for ME! ME-CFS RESOLUTION Proposed by Dist. 5440 3-13-2019-4
The resolution’s purpose is to “leverage Rotary’s worldwide reputation and expertise on polio eradication to raise awareness on the need to educate the public and medical practitioners on the importance of treating and ultimately finding a cure for those suffering from ME/CFS.”
Jim (in the MillionsMissing shirt) proposed it at his and Pam Lutey’s local chapter and then took it to District 5440 which includes all of Wyoming, north central Colorado, and a bit of Nebraska and Idaho. The resolution passed within District 5440 unanimously with the 55 member chapters.
Now, the District will submit the Resolution to the Rotary International Council on Resolutions and there should be a final outcome in November.
This has already been a long process and we give our heart-felt thanks to Jim and Pam Lutey for their long hours and leadership on this.
