Medpedia Community

Hi readers,

You will notice that on the left upper corner of my Calling the Shots page there is a new logo. I am proud to announce that I am now one of the contributors to Medpedia, a site designed to educate people on various conditions, illnesses, and to answer questions in general. My Calling the Shots blog is now included as part of Medpedia.

During my short time on this site thus far, I have been quite pleased. I get to communicate directly with physicians of various backgrounds and meet experts in the field of breast cancer and self-advocacy.

I have found the staff and medical experts at this site to be kind and helpful.

Please check it out by clicking the icon. You'll be glad you did!
