Welcome New Members!

Thank you for showing your support for Participatory Medicine:

“Participatory Medicine is a movement in which networked patients shift from being mere passengers to responsible drivers of their health, and in which providers encourage and value them as full partners.”

You will be subscribed automatically to our members-only email group. Once subscribed (you’ll receive a separate notice), you can browse the list archive here.

  • This is the main meeting place where we share ideas and bounce opinions against other members with various backgrounds.
  • On the archive page you’ll also find Get A Password, so you can browse the archives.

If you joined SPM as an individual, your organization can show its support (and display our logo) by becoming a corporate member. Here’s how.
