January #WEGOHealthChat Recap: Your 2018 Advocacy Goals

Goals! Everybody has them, but Patient Leaders seem to be some of the most goal-oriented people around.

We’re always so impressed with the goals our Patient Leaders set and achieve year after year. That’s why we were so egar to ask our Network what they hoped to accomplish in 2018. We know these Leaders have big shoes to fill, but they still knocked our socks off with their responses.

In January’s #WEGOHealthChat, we discussed how 2017 went in terms of advocacy and then finished off with sharing 2018 advocacy goals. We invite you to share your goals with us as well!

If you need some inspiration for your advocacy this year, take a few minutes to read the goals our Network has set out to accomplish this year! You can catch a preview below, but if you’d like the whole transcript (and you do!) you can read it here.

We also created this handy graphic to help keep you accountable for your 2018 goals.  Fill in your goal, share it on social media and tag @WEGOHealth.  We’ll help keep you on track with your goals over the next year!
