Patient Empowerment Through Social Networking

Here’s an interesting story from CNN about how medical patients can find support and help through patient social networking sites.  Here’s a link.  There are several links within the article to some of the websites that link patients to patients.  This is wonderful!  It’s difficult to go through serious illness.  It’s difficult even to go through a non-threatening illness.  Not only is support needed, but getting advice about the best doctors and navigating the healthcare system are key and indispencable.
