Mission Statement

The Fibromyalgia Information Foundation (FIF) is a not-for-profit foundation, registered in the State of Oregon, whose directors are University Researchers engaged in the day to day management of fibromyalgia patients or fibromyalgia research. We are actively involved in research projects to further understand the cause of fibromyalgia symptoms and develop effective treatments. The major aim of FIF is to increase the public's understanding of fibromyalgia, by providing information that is based on scientifically validated research studies. We also recruit and train the next generation of fibromyalgia researchers. To these ends, we provide educational and self-help tools via relevant postings, internet links, books, articles, video media, conferences, and our speakers bureau.

In order to maintain absence of bias commercial endorsements and/or advertisements are not accepted on our website.

The Fibromyalgia Information Foundation is an all volunteer organization with no full time staff, and cannot answer questions about specific treatments, diagnoses, or symptoms.

We hope you find the information on our website helpful in your quest to improve your knowledge about fibromyalgia.
