In the news…

A few months ago, I was contacted by a writer looking to do a story about a patient for the American College of Rheumatology‘s online magazine, “The Rheumatologist“. She wanted to talk to someone who had attending the ACR’s annual Advocates for Arthritis event in Washington DC.  I was honored someone recommended me for the article.  We spoke back in June but after all this time, I thought the article may have been shelved.  Someone forwarded it to me yesterday.  I’m thrilled.  Thank you to Karen Appold and the ACR for sharing my story of being both a patient AND a patient advocate.

Let me know what you think!  Click below to check out the article on The Rheumatologist.

    1. It typically opens in June. I want to do it again. Unfortunately, it occurs in September, when I just go back to work, which makes it hard for me to take off. The best was when I went with my nephew. I was so proud of him.
