Today we’re excited to announce that Mayo Clinic and Inspire have launched “Experts by Experience” – monthly articles written by patients and caregivers from around the world.
The kickoff article is Kindness at the Margins for Caregivers by caregiver Renata Louwers.
Everyone has a story to tell. As you know firsthand, sharing experiences helps build hope and connections. “We have long believed that patient and caregiver stories have considerable power to not just improve their own health care experience, but to improve health care overall,” says Farris Timimi, M.D., a Mayo Clinic cardiologist and medical director for the Mayo Clinic Social Media Network, a collaborative learning community and resources for advancing the use of social media in health.
Experts by Experience articles will appear monthly in communities here on Mayo Clinic Connect, Inspire.com, and for professionals on the Mayo Clinic Social Media Network. Read more about Experts by Experience in today’s press release.
Please feel free to share the articles with your online and offline networks. If you have feedback on the series, please contact me using this form.
