Social media is shaping the way patients and caregivers make decisions about their healthcare, and online health advocates and bloggers are at the forefront of this movement. In an effort to support online health advocates who offer such important support to others facing medical challenges, Janssen created HealtheVoices™ – a groundbreaking empowerment and leadership conference created exclusively for online health advocates and bloggers.
In its second year, HealtheVoices™ brought together an international audience of nearly 100 representatives from 20+ health conditions for a weekend-long experience in Chicago, IL. Our mission was to provide the tools, resources and inspiration to improve online patient and caregiver communities and expand their reach. Attendees had the opportunity to interact with other health activists and learn from experts in health, social media and advocacy.
