Conditionconfident Chat

Twitter Chat!

Join us on February 25th at 7:00 pm ET for a #ConditionConfident Twitter Chat

From the outside, getting a diagnosis might seem like an ending. But the reality is, for many people it means the start of a new chapter, where they start to take back control of their own story again.

Join other patients along with AARDA, Clara Health, International Foundation for Autoimmune and Autoinflammatory Arthritis (IFAA), and the Purple Playas Foundation, to discuss diagnoses.

Discuss with how you got to your diagnosis, the importance of a correct, timely diagnosis, and confidence in knowing about the condition you have. Along with how the knowledge you have in your condition can empower you to take back control over your health.

To join the conversation, log in to your twitter account next Monday at 7:00 pm ET where we will be using a Q1 A1 format with the following questions.

(Q1) What has your journey been like to getting a diagnosis? How long did it take? Are you still searching?

(Q2) What advice do you have for someone still seeking a diagnosis?

(Q3) What factors do you believe can help speed the time to diagnosis?

(Q4) Are you confident in the diagnosis you’ve been given? Why or why not?

(Q5) How did you decide on a treatment plan? How long after your diagnosis did you start treatment?

Join at anytime! Remember to use the hashtag, #ConditionConfident to participate
