  • Q1.Do patients think pharma companies should be involved with social media?

    –Eh, I don’t really care either way. I think they should be aware of what we’re wanting and discussing in regards to the companies themselves…but I don’t see it being very useful for them to actually take part.

    Q2. Can both “sides” learn a little something from each other? Pt’s learn from pharm com and them learning from Pt’s

    –We can leave the politics of the company. They can learn what we really want, a cure.

    Q3. Do you like or dislike when a pharm company participates on online communities? Do you think it’s taking away from the PT?

    –I think it’s good they are noticing that we’re using it and hopefully learning from it, but I don’t think we need to hear from them. I haven’t heard of them doing the same with other groups.

    Q4. What does National Diabetes Month and World Diabetes Day mean to you as a PWD or caretaker?

    –Not much really. It just means another month, another cause and another struggle to try and get in the spotlight. I only recently in the last couple of years started participating in them.

    Q4.5 Do you think more needs to be done during World Diabetes Day and National Diabetes Awareness month? What can we do?

    –I think we need more media spotlight. I actually didn’t know about either thing until I happened to watch the news and there was a brief story about it. That’s all I had heard about it for the whole month!
