We Go To WEGO!

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to "meet" the two awesome bloggers who will be participating with me in a webinar on Monday, November 22nd at 8PM EST. What a great experience to interact with these two talented women who spend a great deal of time and effort in raising awareness, educating, and helping others deal successfully with chronic illnesses. The topic is Continuing Health Activism With Chronic Pain. It is sponsored by WEGO health, and you can learn more about this webinar here. I hope that you'll join us!

Why should you participate in a discussion regarding health activism? For lots of reasons - the most important being that autoimmune diseases desperately need to share some of the public's attention. You can help raise awareness, educate others, and encourage valuable research so that someday a cure for these diseases can be found. Your efforts can be as large - or small - as you choose. It all makes a difference, whether you advocate by simply discussing your disease with your family and friends, if you become active in an existing forum, or even if you choose to start your own blog or website.

So what will happen during this webinar? Once you join us by following the link found on the WEGO site here, you will be able to see information on your computer screen, and will also be able to hear Kelly from RA Warrior, Amy from Unavitabella and MHSN Chat, and me responding to questions that you, the audience, submit. You can type your questions in real-time as the webinar progresses. Hopefully we will have time to address all of your awesome questions.

If you can't join us on Monday, I will post a link to a recording of this webinar as soon as it becomes available. I would also strongly encourage you to head over to RA Warrior and Unavitabella to learn more about their authors' experiences with chronic disease and take the opportunity to interact and network with others in their communities. We all can learn a great deal from each other.

I am really looking forward to this event!

Thank goodness I don't have to put on make-up........They tell me that it's an audio-only recording so I can wear my comfy yoga pants and pink bunny slippers if I want to. Dang. This had better be correct information! Maybe I should at least put on some mascara.

So we'll talk on Monday, November 22nd at 8PM EST? Yes?
