Do  you LIKE me?

Jul 24, 2012 - 19 comments

Dear forum family,

  MedHelp has given me permission to  post this in my journal and I hope many of you will see this and want to help.

I have submitted an entry to MAYO clinic for their social media workshop – it should be illuminating to see the medical side of this communication tool.  MAYO Clinic is offering scholarships for three patient/caregivers to participate alongside medical personnel in their upcoming Social Media Conference.  It appears I am the only Multiple Sclerosis patient advocate who has applied and I would appreciate your taking a few minutes to support my efforts. They are also weighing comments, so feel free to add a few words there as well, either about my essay or the importance of social media to you.


If you can help., go to this link and select either the LIKE and/or the TWEET on the ESSAY page.  These are located directly below the essay.

Please share this with your contacts, and feel free to post on your FB page, if you have one - I need all the LIKES or TWEETS I can gather.   This part of the process ends on August 3, so please do this immediately if you can.

Thanks, Laura
aka Lulu

I am happy to tell you that I am no longer the only MS patient who has submitted an essay to MAYO  - our own Rendean has also submitted her own story for consideration.  So while you are poking around over there you might consider casting a like or tweet for her as well -

The top 15 essays that get the most likes are moved on to the next round of judging by the Mayo panel and it would be great if the two of us were in that batch.  
Thanks !

thanks, Sarah.  I did make the next cut for this scholarship contest and now it is in the hands of the judges.  I believe they make their decision before the first of September so continue to keep your fingers crosssed for me.

I wish I had seen this last summer. I sort of checked out for awhile and kind of had to relearn how to navigate around here again.
