Welcome New Members!

Thank you for showing your support for Participatory Medicine (SPM):

“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.”

Welcome to the organization — we’re pleased to have you join us! (If you joined SPM as an individual, your organization can also show its support by becoming a corporate member.)


SPM Connect

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 SPM Connect forums here. This is the primary meeting place where members share ideas and bounce opinions with one another, with people and professionals from diverse backgrounds.
