Loved reading this. I have seen first-hand how powerful social media is as a tool in patient advocacy, particularly when it comes to creating and sustaining online communities. I recently wrote on this topic, including quotes from community experts like the fab @colleenyoung https://powerfulpatients.org/2017/09/26/12-keys-to-finding-growing-and-nurturing-your-online-community/?utm_content=bufferca1fb&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer
