I'll Be Attending the Invisible Illness Awareness Virtual Conference Next Week!

You can read the entire press release at the Invisible Illness Awareness Week website. San Diego, CA — (SBWIRE) — 08/28/2012 — When it comes to bloggers with passion, “e-patient bloggers” who share about their illness journeys, have changed how people find encouragement for living with their illness. A recent study found that 41% of e-patients have read someone else’s commentary or experience about health or medical issues on an online news group, website or blog, and 38% say it changed the way they cope with a chronic condition or manage pain.*
National Invisible Chronic Illness Awareness Week (NICIAW), established in 2002, is September 10-16, 2012 and e-patient bloggers are the inspirational force behind the campaign’s success.
“These e-patient bloggers are strong advocates for increasing awareness for causes such as invisible illness,” shares Lisa Copen, founder and coordinator for NICIAW. “They open up their hearts and become vulnerable in order to educate others and increase understanding among the healthy community.”
