Being an empowered health consumer is becoming more and more important. Empowered health consumers know how to take charge of their health and are proactive in their care. Whether they’re surfing the web for health information, visiting their doctor or health care professional, or a patient in the hospital; empowered health consumers know how to question and communicate.
Becoming an empowered health consumer is important for Moms because they are often responsible for championing healthcare for their children, their parents, their mate, and of course, for themselves.
It’s fortunate that Moms are an empowered group of women who band together and typically have no problem speaking up on issues that are important to them. Moms are thirsty for health information, and are active on the front lines of technology. They know how to navigate the Internet to obtain health info. Many are active in social communities and they exchange patient stories and share ideas with each other.
This week I’d like to help Moms become more empowered health consumers. I’ll be discussing Understanding Health News, Questions to Ask, What Moms Should Carry In Their Wallets and Online Resources for Becoming an Empowered Health Consumer.
I look forward to your input!
