Episode Info: Have you heard the term Patient Advocate? How about the expression "not about me without me" in the patient space? So often over the past decades, if not hundreds and thousands of years, the patients have sometimes the least consideration when healthcare decisions have been made. Well, that's changing due to empowered patients who are using social media, online resources and the ability to connect with other people of like situations. Patients now are finding that they not only have a voice, but that voice is starting to be respected and drawn into the healthcare community. Today on Get Social Health I'm very proud to be speaking to Lilly Stairs. She is a leading voice in the rapidly growing patient engagement field. This will be the first of a number of podcasts that I'll be covering where we'll be talking with patients or about patients and their engagement in healthcare.

So whether it's the work she's doing as a speaker or the company that she's with, she really has a fascinating perspective on getting patients involved. And why is she such a strong patient advocate? Because she has battled a couple of very serious chronic health issues and I think you're going to find that really interesting to hear about. So without any further ado, welcome to the podcast. Lilly. Lilly: 02:31 Thank you for that lovely introduction, Janet. Janet: 02:35 You know, it's tough when you're really representing well, every part of healthcare. Which hat you put on must be kind of confusing. Lilly: 02:42 It is. You know, I always, I do joke all the time about how I wear so many different hats and now I have to take them on and off and sometimes they wear them all at once. They've even done a post on Instagram ones where I put a bunch of different emojis on my head representing all the different hats that I wear. Janet: 02:59 No, that actually m...
