Abigail A. Brown, PhD., is a post-doctoral fellow at Eating Recovery Center-Insight Behavioral Health in Chicago, Illinois, US.[1] She received her Doctorate in Clinical-Community Psychology at the Center for Community Research, DePaul University, Chicago, Illinois, with Dr. Leonard Jason as her academic advisor. Her research work focuses on myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS), specifically diagnosis of the condition, case definition clarification, the impact of medical, social and familial stigma on quality of life, and non-pharmacological treatment interventions.[2] Her doctoral thesis suggested that post-exertional malaise (PEM) should be considered a cardinal symptom of ME and CFS.[3]
