"Understanding Unexplained Illness: From Knowledge to Action"


Severe fatigue and other serious symptoms, sometimes called chronic fatigue syndrome and myalgic encephalomyelitis, was once regarded as the "yuppie flu" and has been trivialized and stigmatized by health care personnel in the past. It is now recognized as a debilitating illness affecting more than a million Americans (with 90% not diagnosed), with a cost to society of over 20 billion dollars a year. Functional limitations are worse for those with this illness than chronic heart disease. Although experts now agree that the disease has a physical basis, there is a long running and sometimes contentious debate about who has the condition and what may be causing it.

Learn from a leading community researcher about why diagnosis is so complicated, how applied research can inform public policy to improve services, and his commitment to reduce stigma, empower citizens, and reduce barriers to full participation in community life.

"Rape Law in Flux"

Policymakers are increasingly confronting the problem of sexual assault, both on and off on college campuses. Yet the laws and practices surrounding rape remain profoundly disconnected from modern understandings of sex and sexuality. While significant obstacles to reform persist, promising efforts to close this gap are underway.
