I am thrilled to announce that I will be joining the WebMD & MedScape family as a Lupus Community Leader, moderating their Facebook page: WebMD Lupus Community. Please if you have a facebook page, I ask you to join me and engage in conversations because I’ll be posting as often as they let me!
For the past two years I have had the opportunity to bring awareness to this otherwise invisible disease lupus through friends’ organizations, social media and my website. I am incredibly grateful to everyone who has helped me make my vision of a non-profit a reality – thank you.
Today, I get started on an exciting new adventure. Having used WebMD multiple times in the past, I am completely blown away that they reach out to me with the opportunity of being a community leader. I plan to post meaningful content regularly and start many conversations to help our community!
