Washington, D.C. - February 10, 2015: Dr. Peter Rowe of Johns Hopkins served on the committee that wrote the report to change name of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome to Systemic Exertion Intolerance Disease. Dr. Rowe is photographed at the Institute of Medicine in Washington D.C. Tuesday February 10, 2015, where the committee issued a press release detailing the condition's name change. According to Dr. Rowe, patients disliked the entire phrase "chronic fatigue syndrome," feeling it misrepresents the condition which feels more like living with constant flu symptoms rather than being just being tired.
