Pamela Allen Fox, PhD, is a Project Director at the Center for Community Research, College of Science and Health, DePaul University, Chicago, Illinois, US. She works under Leonard Jason who is the Director of the Center for Community Research.[1]

Fox is currently the Project Director on an epidemiology study NIH #5R01HD072208-04 “Pediatric Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) in a community based sample" which will estimate the prevalence of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) in a pediatric sample.[2]

National Institutes of Health (NIH) - A set of biomedical research institutes operated by the U.S. government, under the auspices of the Department of Health and Human Services.

myalgic encephalomyelitis (M.E.) - A disease often marked by neurological symptoms, but fatigue is sometimes a symptom as well. Some diagnostic criteria distinguish it from chronic fatigue syndrome, while other diagnostic criteria consider it to be a synonym for chronic fatigue syndrome. A defining characteristic of ME is post-exertional malaise (PEM), or post-exertional neuroimmune exhaustion (PENE), which is a notable exacerbation of symptoms brought on by small exertions. PEM can last for days or weeks. Symptoms can include cognitive impairments, muscle pain (myalgia), trouble remaining upright (orthostatic intolerance), sleep abnormalities, and gastro-intestinal impairments, among others. An estimated 25% of those suffering from ME are housebound or bedbound. The World Health Organization (WHO) classifies ME as a neurological disease.
