Julie Rehmeyer is a mathematics and science journalist who holds a masters degree from MIT and a long list of credits in publications such as New Scientist, Wired and Technology Review. She is also a long-term sufferer of ME/CFS.
In February 2014, Rehmeyer gave a seminar at the Santa Fe Institute discussing the problematic attitude of the government, the media and the medical profession to ME/CFS and similar illnesses without clear mechanisms or easily-defined symptoms. The seminar covers such wide-reaching topics as the PACE study, mould reactivity and Rehmeyer’s personal journey with chronic fatigue syndrome and includes interesting discussion with audience members.
