learning, lungs and life — one breath at a time
I’ve expressed interest in starting an asthma chat on Twitter.
Simply, I’m calling this one Living With Asthma Chat, or LWAC.
I’m hoping to try one out next Tuesday, June 21st at 8-9 PM CST if there’s enough interest generated [we’ll say at least ten people].
Here’s what I need you to do to help me out:
-Make a Twitter account if you don’t already have one — https://twitter.com/?lang=en
–Please get familiar with Twitter before the chat. I can help you out via e-mail. You will need to know how to send “at replies” and use the #lwac hash tag. It’s not as scary as it sounds!
-Please submit discussion themes to email@example.com or my personal e-mail address with the subject LWAC.
If you have specific discussion topics within these themes, please outline them in the e-mail.
EXAMPLE TOPIC: ASTHMA ADVOCACY
~What has your experience been with your region’s official asthma advocacy organization?
~What would you like to see done differently in organization-facilitated advocacy?
~What has your personal involvement in asthma advocacy been like?
~Now that you’ve seen what others have been up to re: advocacy, what new ideas would you like to try?
I’d like to have four specific questions pertaining to the topic per session.
Much like the other chats I’ve been involved in, we’d begin with introductions at 8 PM CST for about five minutes, spend ten-ish minutes per topic, and then have some time for closing at the end, and be wrapped up by 9PM CST. [Sorry to our friends across the pond, feel free to get up early and join us ;)].
I’ve also set up a blog that may or may not be used to facilitate communication about chat topics. Feel free to check it out at http://lwachat.wordpress.com/ or just use the e-mail address[es] above.
PLEASE contact me ASAP via the SARP group, e-mail or the Breathinstephen asthma forums if you’re interested in participating, have questions or have ideas to contribute!
Additionally, if this gets rolling, how often would you like these chats to occur? Weekly, biweekly, monthly?
Let me know your thoughts!
