As you may know – we love celebrating Health Activist accomplishments! You work hard every day to do awesome things for the people in your health communities and are always raising awareness in new ways. It can be so uplifting to read a great blog post, see a new project come to fruition, and watch efforts make a difference. It’s why we do what we do – and why you should feel great about yourself.
Similarly – there’s nothing quite like seeing someone in your community get recognition for their work. A triumph for one Health Activist is a true triumph for Health Activism!
So today we wanted to give a shoutout to Health Activist for the AS community and advocate artiste – Jenna Visscher – for her hard work. We’re excited to share with everyone this article that features Jenna, her work, and how she’s doing big things for the AS community both on and offline.
The article in The Saturday Evening Post celebrates Jenna’s project to paint an apple a day (thus her community name!) to raise awareness and funds of the Spondylitis Association of America. As Jenna says in the article, “Apples symbolize that health and healing are possible despite dealing with a difficult and painful disease.”
It’s exciting to see Jenna (and her cool project) featured and see some facts about AS in there alongside her story to offer quick info that can open the eyes of readers who may be unaware of AS. Awareness!
