Women living with breast cancer, brain injuries, lupus, sarcoidosis, and spina bifida are using social media to transform their health issues into life opportunities. Social media allows them to discover their voice and passion, tell their stories, create communities of support, overcome their fears about technology, reinvent themselves by learning new skills and sharing their gifts, and conduct awareness and outreach. These women walk their daily paths as wonderful women on the worldwide web with a mission to inspire, inform, and ignite a passion for living authentically and fully!

  1. This show is timely as a major mobile health (follow #mhealth) conference has just finished up last week. @jamilahking’s http://t.co/bE1tgXzK article and the @colorlines infographic about the new wireless digital divide http://t.co/ZxAtt6ZA also offer insight. I believe an opportunity exist to improve the lives of women of color with mobile health tools.

    I’m a physician-in-training doing clinical research for cardiovascular health particularly in African Americans particularly among women.

    I hope to join the call and tweet too.

  2. Hi Katherine.

    Thank you for sharing about the mobile health conference. I totally agree with you about mobile health tools and their power to help women improve their lives, especially women of color and women in underserved communities. I hope you can join the show on December 11. Best wishes on your clinical research.
