Exploring chronic disease
19 Oct 2009
A couple weeks ago, I had the pleasure of giving a presentation to a tri-chapter meeting of the Medical Library Association. The topic was why some patients with chronic disease are disaffected and how online social networks have met some of their needs. I try to offer a balanced perspective – both the good and bad of online social networks.
The live presentation was filmed but the room was a bit on the dark side. So, despite a laudable job filming by my colleague, Judy, I decided to put up a slideshow with voiceovers.
Amy Proal graduated from Georgetown University in 2005 with a degree in biology. While at Georgetown, she wrote her senior thesis on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and the Marshall Protocol.
Amy has spoken at several international conferences and authored several peer-reviewed papers on the intersection of bacteria and chronic disease.
