This month we were joined by Birthday boy Shakir Cannon and engaged in a conversation about sharing your health journeys and information online.
Shakir is a sickle cell health activist who is making huge waves across the patient community. He represents patients at conferences (like ePharma Summit 2016), shares his journey through his social media channels and co-founded the Minority Coalition for Precision Medicine (MCPM) to which he’s taken his advocacy to the White House for the Precision Medicine Initiative.
Make sure to follow Shakir’s advocacy on his blog, his facebook and his twitter and read through this great discussion we had!
Make sure to join us for our next #HAChat on July 5th, 2016!
