#LCSM Chat Topic 10/5: Lung Cancer Advocacy: How we can help ourselves
With November Lung Cancer Awareness Month #LCAM17 just around the corner, this is a good time to explore the many ways we can do advocacy work, whether for ourselves or on behalf of a loved one. In fact, this is the topic of this Thursday’s edition of #LCSM Chat at 5 pm Pacific, 8 pm Eastern, moderated by Deana Hendrickson. So, let’s roll up our sleeves and get to it.
T1: Are there particular advocacy groups with whom you like to work? Which ones? Why?
T2: Have you ever done advocacy on your own, in small or big ways? Why? How?
T3: What do you see as barriers to patients doing advocacy work on their own behalf? Explain.
T4: What do you think about patients doing direct, grassroots advocacy on their own, as a complementary addition to the major orgs?
Please join us on Thursday for what will be a friendly, lively discussion. If you’re new to tweetchats, this will be a good one to dip your toe in, but first read this primer. We look forward to seeing everyone on 10/5!
