This week, Britt Johnson joins me for a discussion about freelancing as a patient advocate, the difficult work/life balance of patient advocacy, and a look back on her 48-hour live tweeting effort of her #ChronicLife. Enjoy.
Britt Johnson is my guest this week. Britt was one of the featured ePatients at Medicine X last year, so we naturally spend some time talking about her experiences there including the pressure of a five-minute speech. I learn that warm weather is the only thing that can cancel school in Alaska. We discuss, at length, her rheumatoid arthritis diagnosis story. And we also put the word and the meaning of “pain” in a proper context. Enjoy.
And be sure to check out Britt’s presentation at Medicine X.
