Review for Society For Participatory Medicine, Newburyport, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Over the course of my own personal healthcare advocacy I came across this organization and have found it a great source of solace and lighting rod of proactivity. As such I finally personally joined last year. Through that I have found that I participate more in the boarder goals of patient advocacy as opposed to personal advocacy. And, that I have found brings me out of my own medical quagmire. This organization helps bring together disparate patient voices to create a interwoven fabric of patient voices. And, that is the wonder of it all.

I find the society on the cusp of a new era. There are more engaged active participants and the society is entering a new phase of development from grassroots self-organizers to developing a broader voice (the adolescent phase). This phase needs to be managed well so that the organization's voice and mission are not compromised. (that is my one constructive feedback).

Role:  Client Served & I participate as I can.
