Listen Up! Here Comes The Patient Voice

Posted January 20th, 2011 by

In addition to hearing from you through our PatientsLikeMe newsletters, we sometimes get a chance to meet you in person to hear what you have to say about living with your condition.   Here are two videos highlighting interviews we conducted in 2010 with patients just like you.  In the first video, you’ll hear directly from members of our Parkinson’s Community, representing Team PatientsLikeMe at the 2010 Parkinson’s Unity Walk.  The second video is from the U.S. Transplant Games, where we interviewed YellowisJoy, a member of our Transplant Community and National Kidney Foundation’s Team Mid New England. Listen up – here comes the patient voice!
