Content Partners Share and Raise Preeclampsia Awareness During May 2013

Last Updated on Thursday, June 06, 2013

The first official National Preeclampsia Awareness Month (May 2013) was supported by many web content partners. Feature articles and blogs appeared in many places. Among them were the following. We are grateful to all who shared information about preeclampsia on our shared mission to raise awareness, educate patients and health care providers, improve the quality of care, accelerate research for a cause and a cure, and support all affected by the hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. Common themes among the feature articles and blogs were Preeclampsia Awareness Saves Lives, Empowering Patients & Health Care Providers, Preeclampsia & Heart Health, Call to Accelerate Research, and Global Access to Care.

In addition to feature articles and blogs, Preeclampsia Awareness Month 2013 was marked by many local news articles and blogs in Promise Walk locations, many nationwide Mommy Blogger mentions, and also Social Media posts nationwide, including five Twitter events. The tweets from these events can be viewed on Twitter.com under the hash tag #PreAM13.

We are especially thankful to these individuals and organizations for helping us with our Preeclampsia Awareness Month Twitter Chats:

  • The PreAM13 Kickoff Twitter Party, featuring Philadelphia Promise Walk Coordinator Sarah Hughes
  • The Empowered Patient, featuring CNN Senior Medical Correspondent Elizabeth Cohen
  • Heart Health 4 Preeclampsia Survivors, featuring SCAI (www.secondscount.org) and cardiologist J.P. Reilly
  • Research for Preeclampsia Patients, featuring Dr. Douglas Woelkers and Caryn Rogers, Preeclampsia Foundation Science Writer
  • Preeclampsia and Global Maternal Mortality, featuring Eleni Tsigas and Jeanne Faulkner of Every Mother Counts

And we thank Pregnancy Magazine for hosting our first Google + Hangout, "What is Preeclampsia?," featuring Eleni Tsigas, Dr. Douglas Woelkers, Dr. Linda Burke-Galloway and Nicole O'Connell, preeclampsia survivor.
