Sjogren's Education in Korea

Last week, I received this email from a physician professor at Ewa Womans University in Seoul:

Sep 3 (4 days ago)

to me 
Dear Julia Oleinik,

I am a doctor of radiology dept in Ewha Womans University, Korea.
I have seen a tracking sheet in your blog and impressed by such a good tool.
In next Friday, the Korean conference for radiologists will be held and there will be a lecture for "thoracic manifestation of systemic disease". 
I am asking you that I can use this sheet in my presentation slide for explanation about systeic symptomes of Sjogren SD.
Please let me know.

Thank you.

Of course I couldn't take credit for the symptom tracking sheet:


The tool is a product of the Sjogrens Syndrome Foundation. The Foundation has given permission for its use to any clinicians or patients. So I think it would be perfectly appropriate for you to use it. 

Thank you for educating others about Sjogrens Syndrome! 

Best regards, 
Julia Oleinik

Isn't great that you can see the good fruits of your ...labor of love? Makes you wonder if you should write a title called," Hey, Doctors, Look at This this Damn Chart and Make Copies for Your Patients!" Ha! Nice watching you and John have fun.
