Empowered #patientchat – Entering Adulthood with a Chronic Condition

October 16, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

You’re Invited! We hope you’ll join us for our next Empowered #patientchat as we discuss the impact of entering adulthood with a lifelong condition with Health Advocacy Summit (@HA_Summit).

Coping and living with a serious illness can feel overwhelming and you may experience a range of emotions. This can be especially true when you are just finding your place in the world. In this #patientchat, we want to discuss the challenges of entering adulthood with a chronic condition, how to cope, and where to find resources and support

 We hope to see you Friday, October 16th on Twitter (or tchat.io/rooms/patientchat) at 10:00 am Pacific / 1:00 pm Eastern. Be sure to include the hashtag #patientchat in all your responses!

 Guiding our discussion will be the following Topic Questions (T#):

T1: When you were first diagnosed, did you know anyone with your condition? How did you find support? #patientchat

T2: What do you think are some of the unique challenges for someone who is entering into adulthood with a chronic condition? #patientchat

T3: How did or do you approach these challenges? Did you find any resources helpful? #patientchat

T4: What are your top concerns this year for school? If you are in the workplace, what is something that is working well since the pandemic and something that is not? #patientchat

T5: How has your relationship changed with your family/friends/significant other changed since diagnosis or throughout your disease journey? #patientchat


Empowered Patient Chats (#patientchat) are held every other Friday at 10:00 am Pacific / 1:00 pm Eastern and during the chat patients and advocates come to learn from each other and discuss topics of interest to empowered patients.
