You’re Invited! We hope you’ll join us for our next Empowered #patientchat as we discuss the power of patient storytelling with special guest Kerri Sparling (@patientrev). Kerri was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in 1986, and now works to raise awareness for diabetes as a speaker and writer. Her blog is SixUntilMe.com and she also sits on the board of Patient Revolution, a movement for careful and kind patient care.
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.
