A Johns Hopkins School of Medicine graduate, Dr. Bateman’s interest in chronic fatigue syndrome/fibromyalgia began after her sister, Shauna, became chronically ill in 1987 and was diagnosed with depression and advised to ‘take a night class”. Further investigations by Dr. Bateman convinced her that her sister had fibromyalgia/ME/CFS.
Dr. Bateman opened the Fatigue Consultation Clinic in 1991 and since then has served on numerous boards and positions including the Boards of the International Association of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (IACFS/ME) and CFIDS Association of America, the federal advisory panel for CFS (CFSAC). She has also co-authored a CDC video course, has participated in numerous clinical trials, is a frequent speaker at events and created OFFER (The Organization for Fatigue and Fibromyalgia Education and Research), a non-profit group in Salt Lake City that has produced several conferences.
Dr. Bateman’s Tips and Travails of Treatment may be the single best introduction to treatment found.
An articulate and clear speaker Dr. Bateman has been featured in several video presentations.
