Today we have a post by Sharifa that really gets to the heart of January goal-making: creating a Mission Statement for yourself and your community. In order to really get things done and stay on track with your Health Activist brand. Have you written a plan for what you want to accomplish? It’s worth a shot – especially when thinking of how you want to grow your community! –Amanda
Editor’s Note: I’m excited to share a post with you written by our Sponsor Programs Assistant Sharifa Simon-Roberts on Thyroid Awareness Month. To learn more about Thyroid Awareness and the online Thyroid community – check out our interviews with Katie Schwartz, founder of the wonderful Dear Thyroid, and Mary Shomon of About.com’s Thyroid community. Both are doing amazing things for their communities and, if you haven’t yet, you’ll learn a bit more about thyroid health! –Amanda
For today’s Health Activist Tweetchat let’s continue with our big picture thinking and play a little “What if” game. Health Activist Wishlist-creation. In true brainstorm fashion – there are no wrong answers!
Join us at 3pm ET for a fun brainstorm chat about the following topics:
Now that the Health Activist Award nomination period has concluded and judging has begun, we are pleased to share all of the nominations with you! As they say, it’s just an honor to be nominated – and, looking at what the nominators had to say about all the Health Activists they nominated – it’s true.
Each month, in our community newsletter we feature Health Activists who amazing things for their health communities that we think you should get to know. We love meeting new people and know how important it is for Health Activists to connect across health conditions and interests so we can work together and support better healthcare overall.
At WEGO Health, we really love (and benefit from having) our Editorial Calendar complete with monthly themes to focus on and center our efforts around. It keeps us on target as an company and helps integrate all of the many ideas we have in an organized way. Last year, we chose a theme for each and every month of 2011 and worked to highlight things every week that fit into the theme. We featured interviews, hosted great webinars, and shared resources to help you and your communities. And, well, we want to do even more of these great things in 2012!
We hope your 2012 is off to a great start and that you’re looking forward to an even bigger and better year in Health Activism. Thanks for always inspiring us and doing such great work for your fellow patients and online health community members! We’re so happy to have met all of you and are excited to continue learning from you and promoting your efforts for others.
It’s the first Tuesday of the year and the first Health Activist Tweetchat of the year! We want to hear from you.
What do you want to accomplish in 2012 and how can we help?
Join us for today’s Health Activist Tweetchat at 3pm ET to discuss and set some awesome goals for your community.
We look forward to hearing from you and hope you’ll invite everyone you know to join us!
Congratulations on making it through 2011 – we hope the year was as successful for you as it was for Health Activism in general. Because it was truly the biggest year in online health advocacy ever! We’re proud to have met so many wonderful leaders this year and can’t wait to do even more with you in 2012.
Imagine 2012 as a clean slate – what do you envision for yourself this year? What 5 goals do you have for your health advocacy and what are 5 dreams you have for your community this year? We want to help you plan your years and hear from you what you’d like WEGO Health’s help with from January to December, too.
