WebMD will be covering President Obama's State of the Union address closely on Tuesday, Jan. 25, at 9 p.m. ET, and the Republican response afterwards as it regards that state of health care in our country. We will also be live-tweeting during both events, and we hope you'll follow us on Twitter and search for #wbmdsotu to join in the conversation.
As part of the event, we'll be gathering member questions about health care reform both before and after the president's address and will present those questions to Secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius, in a roundtable panel on Thursday, Jan. 27, at 4:30 p.m. ET. We invite you to submit your questions , and then join us in the live event on Thursday (whitehouse.gov/live) to see how they were addressed.
If you are unable to view the event live, we'll be posting the video up on our WebMD Newsroom blog .
We hope that this information will be helpful to you as you try to navigate all the new changes in our country's health care system.
Well I don't know about all of you, but I have trouble making time for things for myself. I try hard each week to do 1 thing for myself but between work, family and day to day life, it becomes terrible hard. I imagine doctors visits, managing medications and other things added in would be even more difficult. So share some ideas on how to manage your time, with all the medical added in. I am sure some of the newly diagnosed members are wondering how each of you gets through the day.
While we are at it, how was the weekend? My daughter will be 1 tomorrow so we had her birthday party on Saturday. Family came over and we had a nice time. If it wasn't exhausting!
I look forward to hearing from everyone! Have a great start to your week! EmmaView Thread
It is true that you members are very informative. I only suggested that the new member post here questions in the hope that either the medical doctors and members might be able to help them. I still believe this board is beneficial for those looking for advice or having questions.
It looks like the members gave you some good suggestions. I just wanted to say welcome to the MS community. The members here are very imformative, and helpful. If you have any questions I am sure between them and our experts someone can steer you in the right direction.
We're compiling a list of all the events and milestones that our members like to keep track of in their lives. For instance, most of us like to keep track of birthdays of family and friends. Parents like to keep a record of when their children hit milestones, such as rolling over, first words, walking, cutting a tooth. And, many of us keep track of our medications, treatments and doctors visits. Members of our Breast Cancer community like to share with others when they have been "Cancer Free" for six months, a year, two years, and on.
Think about what you like to keep track of and milestones you like to share with your family and friends and post them here in this thread. I bet you all keep track of a lot of things our staff would never think of!
