Patients for a Moment Blog Carnival
Dear Thyroid is honored to be hosting the next edition of Patients for a Moment. Patients for a Moment is a patient-centered blog carnival—submitted posts are written for, by, or about patients. Started by Duncan Cross and now spearheaded by Leslie, the goal of PFAM is to “build connections within the community of people who blog about illness, disease, and disability. This includes doctors, nurses, caregivers, even policy wonks – but especially patients.” Check out the last edition of PFAM over at Getting Closer to Myself.
This month the question raised is about awareness: How has your disease changed your view of awareness? Do you feel that raising awareness is important? Do you feel the need to educate others about your disease? If so, how do you go about it?
If you would like to submit a post that addresses the above questions, email the following information to Joanna at firstname.lastname@example.org:
- Your name as you would like it to appear in our PFAM post
- The name of your blog
- The name of your blog post
- The URL to your blog post
Please be sure to put “PFAM” in the subject line of the email. All submission guidelines are available here. To be considered, all submissions must be received no later than Sunday, September 5 at 11:59PM EST.
We look forward to reading your thoughts on awareness!
