Montoya Lecture

This definitely wasn't an 'get acquainted with CFS' talk. There was no
boring scholarly introduction to CFS ("Chronic fatigue syndrome effects
blah, blah, blah….has x number of symptoms….blah, blah…..)…Dr. Montoya was
clearly trying to wake people up.

Calling ME/CFS one of the most 'mis-perceived' illnesses in medicine,
Montoya quickly got to the heart of the matter calling chronic fatigue
syndrome 'an extreme event' in the medical community and castigated them
(gently) a bit for mostly ignoring a disease which 'significantly
compromised the health' of millions of people.
