Follow (this Health Activist Endeavor) Friday!

by Amanda

Today I felt inspired by the popular Twitter hashtag extravaganza “Follow Friday” (#FF), where people suggest their favorite Twitter users every Friday. It’s an easy feel-good way to promote the work of others. And it’s great because it gives you new people to add to your feed! Well, I wanted to do our own version to promote awesome endeavors of Health Activists. Whether it’s a new project (like today’s very first HAFF) or an old favorite to revisit – I think this will be a good way to give virtual props to our friends who are working so hard to raise awareness in their communities. It is my hope that HAFF will be a way for you to take a minute, step outside your own health community and conditions-of-interest and learn a bit about someone else’s Health Activism. It’s easy to click “Like” or enter “ReTweet” – so why not take advantage of that and really make a difference in someone’s efforts?

Applauding: Friends with MS, 1000 Members and Growing!

by admin
We want to congratulate Health Activist Terry, community manager of =&0=&, for helping his community reach =&1=&! And in only a little over a year! Friends with MS is an awesome Ning health network that serves as an online interactive support group for people with MS, those not yet diagnosed, and those who love them. 1000 members is a huge milestone and a wonderful accomplishment! So, congrats Terry! Keep up the great work! It’s successes like these that get us at WEGO Health really excited! Amanda expresses our love affair with your work perfectly…

“As health leaders, bloggers, Twitterers, and health community creators, you have a special inside view to what’s going on with both your particular health community and across the health condition you support and raise awareness for. That’s huge! And it’s something not a lot of people have. So don’t hide your light under a bushel…


We’d love if you’d share your successes with us! Feel free to write a blog post, start a discussion in a group, or post a video. You can also
tweet us a link to the work you’re doing.
