Two weeks from now will be a busy week for Brass and Ivory (and Lisa).

It's All In The Blog - A blogtalk radio show on Wednesday, April 20 at 8PM with Amy Gurowitz of MS-Life of Learning and Marc Stecker of Wheelchair Kamikaze.

And a WEGO webinar on Thursday, April 21 at 8PM - Navigating Your Health Narrative.

by Amanda
The influence of patient bloggers grows by the day. Patients have taken to the Blogosphere in droves, sharing their stories and empowering others. In doing so, they are actively changing healthcare for the better. Patient bloggers and Health Activists are ushering in a new era of health through anecdotes and self-education. This is precisely why we’ve dedicated our April theme to honor Health Activist writers and why we’ve assembled an awesome webinar event for you to attend.

Whether you’re just setting sail on the vast ocean of patient activism through blogging or have created your own advocacy island – this webinar will be fun and educational for all.
Our webinar, “Navigating Your Health Narrative” features a few of the web’s best health bloggers, each with a diverse set of skills and perspectives to the table. Joining me are:

Lisa Emrich

“Blogging brings the tools of empowerment to our fingertips. Sharing stories is just the beginning.” —
Lisa – MS Activist of Brass & Ivory

Erin Breedlove

“Blogging helps me to help others understand that they’re not alone and helps me to advocate for those with chronic illness and disability on a larger scale than I ever imagined, which has turned out to be one of the most therapeutic and effective coping mechanisms in my day to day life.” —
Erin – Cerebral Palsy Activist of Healthy, Unwealthy, & Wise

Jenni Prokopy

“Speaking openly about life with fibromyalgia is so vital to living an awesome life in spite of illness! Being honest about my condition helps me live an authentic life, and helps me connect with my fellow ChronicBabes. I learn a lot from the responses of my readers – and we get to share moments of inspiration, commiseration, and truth. Blogging openly is the only way to go!” —
Jenni – Fibromyalgia Activist of Chronic Babe
