CHECK OUT SURVIVING AND THRIVING WITH AN INVISIBLE CHRONIC ILLNESS DURING THE WEGO HEALTH WEBINAR WITH ILANA JACQUELINE
When: Feb 22nd, 7:00PM EST.
Owning your own business, consulting, or being an employee with a chronic illness can get chaotic. But you’re more than capable of keeping your career on track. In this WEGO Health webinar, we’ll speak with patient advocate and author of the book Surviving and Thriving with an Invisible Chronic Illness about how to streamline your workload, communicate effectively, and delicately handle some of the more awkward professional situations that intersect with unmanageable symptoms.
How and when do you bring up the limitations or obstacles of your disease with new employers or clients? What new tools are out there for patients wanting to work entirely from home? How should you word that away message on your way to the emergency room? And what fail-safe should you have in place to make sure one bad flare doesn’t cost you the job you love?
***Send us your most pressing questions about living as a patient AND a professional!***
