The Live Yes! Online Community has started a new, on-going series called Hot Topics. Each Hot Topic discussion will take place Monday through Friday and is a 5-day, limited-time special event. Hot Topics will cover just that – trending, in-demand topics featuring a subject matter expert moderator.
Hot Topics are meant to spark discussion and give Online Community users the opportunity to ask questions, share thoughts and get clarity around subjects that matter most. Recently we’ve featured discussions around medical marijuana and CBD oil, plus regenerative medicine and stem cells! Check back here for the most up-to-date schedule for all upcoming Hot Topics!
Upcoming Hot Topic Events:
- April 8 – 12, 2019: Arthritis Diet – Happening Now!
Ask a Nutrition Expert About Diet & Arthritis: What to Eat and What Not to Eat
Moderator: Lona Sandon, PhD
Lona Sandon, PhD, is a registered dietitian nutritionist and associate professor of clinical nutrition at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. Her focus is on nutrition therapy in autoimmune and inflammatory diseases.
- April 22 – 26, 2019: Insurance Solutions
- May 6 – 10, 2019: Opioids
The Online Community will feature a new Hot Topic event every other week for the duration of the year. At the end of each week, the discussion is concluded, and the Hot Topic forum is taken down. Be sure to visit the Online Community during Hot Topic events so you don’t miss out!
The Live Yes! Online Community is an online forum that allows members connect, share and chat with others in a digital space. Currently there are discussion forums dedicated to rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, osteoarthritis, other types of arthritis, families affected by juvenile arthritis (JA), advocacy and a popular one for fun, off-topic talk. There is also a special forum called Ask the Professionals, where a rheumatologist and orthopedic surgeon answer community users’ questions.
One of our users recently noted, “The Live Yes! Online Community is a much needed resource since many of us aren’t able to travel to in-person events. This allows us to communicate with others, share stories and experiences, and get our questions answered by health care providers, all from the comfort of our home!”
Registration in the Live Yes! Online Community is free, and forums are moderated by trained volunteers. Sign up today and join us!
