Honoring 5 Women in Social Media Who Use Their Health Experiences to Inform & Inspire Others


Since National Women’s Health Week (May 8-15 — check out the new look of the National Women’s Health Center web site in June. ), I’ve been thinking about the way people use the Internet to discuss their health experiences.  Today, I read an article in the Washington Post that referenced The Pew Internet & American Life Project’s most recent report on The Social Life of Health Information.  The report concluded that people are sharing more health-related information online such as workout routine results, medical treatment reviews, and awareness about certain health conditions.  It made me think about the powerful ways women are using social media to tell their health stories, raise awareness about their health conditions, and to touch the lives of others.  Five women came to mind: Racquel Dozier, Nicole McLean, Susan Niebur, Kamaria Richmond, and Laura Tellado.  To learn more about these amazing women, see the information below.
