I just joined the WEGO Health Activist Speakers Bureau! As you know, I’ve already been able to do two live panel presentations with WEGO, along with three upcoming web/video based projects. So, when I received the email informing me about their new Health Activist Speakers Bureau, it seemed obvious I should formally sign up to keep these opportunities coming!
Signing up was easy and took just a couple minutes. I indicated a few areas/topics/conditions I feel qualified to speak about, my willingness to travel, and a comment about my favorite/most successful project to date. Voila! I’m in on the list!
I thought some of you might be interested in learning more about it as well – it’s a great way for Health Activists to share our stories, raise awareness and get the word out about the work we’re doing. Don’t worry if you don’t have a “health activist speaking” resume, you have experience living with your challenges, communicating them to others, and an interest in developing understanding across society. But, if you are interested but hesitant, feel free to ask me about my experiences presenting with WEGO. I’d be happy to discuss your concerns! And, submitting your application won’t obligate you to participate in any specific activity, so you can always decline if you are uncomfortable.
Members of the WEGO Health Activist Speakers Bureau receive exclusive invitations to present at conferences, speak to members of the media, and be featured on WEGO Health.
Interested in joining the WEGO Health Activist Speakers Bureau? Apply today! It only takes a few minutes and they’ll email you as soon as they have opportunities relevant to you and your interests.
