New CFSAC chair

According to the CFS Advisory Committee website (http://www.hhs.gov/advcomcfs/roster/index.html), Dr. Christopher Snell of University of Pacific will serve as the new chairman of the federal committee that meets next on May 10, 2010 in Washington, D.C. Dr. Snell has conducted several studies with funding from the CFIDS Association to investigate and document post-exertional relapse in CFS.

Note the new (more respectful) terminology of "post-exertional relapse" versus the older "post-exertional malaise".  Makes it sound more like a disease than laziness.
