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 community forums, SPM Connect within 2 days. Once subscribed (you’ll receive a separate notice), you can access the forums here. This is the main meeting place where we share ideas and bounce opinions against other members with various backgrounds.

If you joined SPM as an individual, your organization can also show its support by becoming a corporate member. Here’s how.
