OMA&P! hosts 'Patients for a Moment' on Oct. 13

Patients for a Moment
It's time for me to get connected to the Patients for a Moment blog carnival again and there is no better way to reconnect than to host the next edition.

Patients for a Moment is a patient-centered blog carnival with the goal of creating a patient blogger community. But participation isn't just limited to those living with illness. Behind every chronically ill person stands a team of medical professionals, friends and caregivers--even health care advocates and policy makers--and all are encouraged to participate!

This Edition's Theme

This time, I want to hear about your fears: what they are, how you face them and what you do to overcome them.

For example:
  • You can share a story about a frightful incident you faced connected to you illness and how you rose above that moment.
  • For medical professionals and caregivers, how do you help when those you care for are scared?
  • Health care advocates and policy wonks, what scares you most about our health care system and what would you do to fix it?
Yeah, illness can be a scary thing. So inspire and support us by sharing your secrets and strategies on how you rise above these intense feelings to face the challenges of life with illness. After all, the key to living well with illness is letting go of your fears.
