The Arthritis Journey: From Living With to Thriving Together
Join us on Monday, May 4, at 6 p.m. EST for #CreakyChats hosted by our official partner @CreakyJoints. It will be the first of our two-part Twitter series kicking off a special campaign in honor of Arthritis Awareness Month: The Arthritis Journey: From Living With to Thriving Together. The topic for the May 4th chat is** Living Independently with Chronic Illness**. We’ll be discussing ways to proactively manage your illness while maintaining a healthy life balance. Learn more about this chat.
The second chat in the series is on Wednesday, May 27, at 2 p.m. EST. CreakyJoints will be a special guest, along with HealthCentral RA writers, for a #HealthTipsChat focused on** Making a Difference with Chronic Illness**. We’ll be discussing the many ways to help spread awareness year-round.
In addition to the two-part Twitter series, we’ll also be hosting a #ChronicLife takeover May 12-13. Follow @Health_Tips as Britt Johnson, one of our HealthCentral patient experts, takes you through a day in a life of living with chronic illness. We’re asking everyone living with RA and other chronic illnesses to share their experiences (good and bad) using the #ChronicLife hashtag during this time.
First time to a chat? No worries. It’s easy. Begin by following @HealthCentral and @CreakyJoints on Twitter for updates on this campaign throughout the month of May. Go to the #CreakyChats, #HealthTipsChat or #ChronicLife hashtag to find the conversation. Use the correlating hashtag when posting throughout the timeframes listed above to join the conversation. Continually refresh your feed to read the most recent posts and follow along. Expert Tip: Don’t forget to change the results from “Top” to “All” so you don’t miss a response.
