Hi, Jenn. Feel free to reply to the questions you’d like answered or to post the question again.
I do not use facebook . Can I just join the Mayo HCM group on facebook and nothing else?
You can join Mayo Clinic Connect’s Heart group where many HCM patients are sharing, including Cynthia https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/heart-blood-vessel-conditions/
How do you address misinformation and stop it from spreading and potentially affecting patient adherence to their medical regimens?
@jillc You have to have a FB account to do anything in FB but you could join and just do the one thing – if the group accepts you.
Thank you…Janet and Colleen

My feed stalled out…not sure if others are having the same issue!
My feed is freezing, even though I’ve refreshed the screen a few times.
Oh – now it’s back.
I am having the same issue. My video just returned. But it stalled for a long time
The community leaders and first followers set the tone and culture of the community. Model the behavior you wish to maintain by the members and it is usually respected.
Do you have a job description for the patient mentors on Mayo Clinic Connect and/or admin/moderator of FB Group? Do they complete your regular volunteer training?
