Breast cancer social media for all stages

The #bcsm podcast is a miniseries about “social media gone right.” While many feel lukewarm at best about social media, it can, and has, become an incredible tool for cancer patients to connect not only to other patients, but to researchers, clinicians, and experts in the field. #bcsm twitter chats give patients the behind-the-scenes info not often shared in a doctors office. This series will cover the history of #bcsm and how it has evolved to support other initiatives that address the unmet needs in the patient community.

Authentically Supportive

For a genuine connection to the breast cancer community, created by and for patients, this is the podcast to listen to. Every Monday evening on Twitter, Alicia Stales and Dr. Attai moderate an hour-long chat that educates, advocates, and collaborates among the breast cancer community. The impact this humble effort has had is extraordinary. Thankfully, they have created a podcast to showcase what its influence is and serves as a beacon for newbies to join this group.
