Alright folks, something really and truly exciting is in the works over here. I've been asked to contribute to this really awesome new channel that will center solely around Crohn's Disease. WEGO Health is this really amazing online community and they're currently launching a series of channels that deal with different diseases/illnesses/ect.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with WEGO Health, they’re a different kind of social media company – with a mission to empower the top 10% of online health social media contributors to connect with one another and with healthcare companies. They call those folks Health Activists – but they’re people like me and you who are community leaders, bloggers, on Facebook, on Twitter, leading online forums, and usually “all of the above.”
As part of their mission, WEGO Health has recently launched a new Health Activist video platform called WEGOHealth.tv where they are presenting the authentic voice of the online community in the form of Health Activist-created videos and resources.
Right now, they’re working on a Crohn’s Disease Channel and they’ve asked for my thoughts on resources and video ideas. I wanted to make sure that all of you had a chance to weigh in as well so I hope you’ll take a minute and let them know what you’d like to see on the channel! You can share your resources and ideas (or just sign up to get notified when the channel launches!) here: WEGOHealth.tv Crohn’s Disease Channel. By sharing our favorite resources and tools, we’ll help to make this new Channel as valuable as possible.
So go to the site, sign up, do whatever you need to do. And get excited! I certainly am!
