Every year December 1st-7th is Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Awareness Week. The week is dedicated to raising awareness for IBD and also recognizing those of us who battle the disease every day. There are always a lot of great events being held whether through the CCFA or other IBD advocates. This year I wanted to do something different that I have not done before and that is hosting a Facebook Live Session!
Facebook Live is where I will get on the page and start up a session where it is a live video of myself where I plan to discuss how and why I started the page and got into advocacy and where I hope to go with it. I also want to answer any questions you might have. Now, I don’t know how many of you will join me, I hope a lot of you but if not it will automatically record the session and you can watch it at a later date.
I think this will be a really cool opportunity for me to interact with the community and for you guys to get a look inside my life and why I do what I do as a patient advocate. I hope you all will join me and come ask some questions and interact with me. The Facebook Live is December 4th at 5:00pm EST and will run for however long depending on how many people join in! Looking forward to it and I hope you join me! Here is the link to the event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/1292065250844047/
