February is Wise Consumer Health Month. In an effort to help members of CCNet become better health care consumers, the Consumer Blog is running weekly 'Consumer Stories' written by CCNet members. For the entire month of February, all blog postings will be in honour of CCNet's dedicated consumers.
If you would like to submit a blog post, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with the title "Consumer Blog" in the subject line. All stories should address what attracted you to The Cochrane Collaboration or why you joined CCNet and be no more than 400 words. Invite a friend to tell their story!
The Wise Consumer Health program was originally promoted by American Institute for Preventive Medicine whose primary goal is to get people more involved in their own health care.
