This past summer, the Rheumatoid Patient Foundation teamed up with ContextMedia, Inc. to bring videos of patients' stories and educational materials to rheumatology offices across the country. To date, we've had three videos running in a rotation across the ContextMedia:Health Network in over 700 rheumatology and internal medicine clinics -- totaling an estimated 8.9 Million impressions! We've also made our brochure titled About RA: What is Rheumatoid Disease available to these offices.
We've received great feedback from those who have seen the videos running in their own doctors' waiting rooms. Here's what Kristen B. had to say: "I am here at my monthly appointment/infusion for my RA, and on the lobby screen I see a video. It has actual RA patients explaining their difficulties in everyday life with this destructive disease. And then I realized, it's your video! You are reaching people everywhere, including the medical professionals, and that is priceless. I am so thankful for all of your work and dedication to step up awareness of this disease. It's an everyday struggle, and it's important for people to know "it's not just arthritis"....as the name implies. It's so much more. So, thank you!!"
For those who haven't gotten a chance to see the videos yet, please check them out below! We have two personal stories that ContextMedia, Inc. created for us, in addition to RPF's own video, The Faces of Rheumatoid Disease.
