Helping Everyone in the Cancer Community Feel Better

Helping Everyone in the Cancer Community Feel Better

OUR GUEST  Kristin MacDermott, Founder of Reimagine, joined the show to talk to us about the how they are Helping Everyone in the Cancer Community Feel Better.

Specifically, we discuss the following with Kristin on this episode:

  1. (3:51) Does your program help patients navigate the health system or do you provide the community to do that or both?
  2. (5:06) Why is it necessary?
  3. (6:08) Who is it for – just patients or for the whole family?
  4. (8:21) How do you know it works?
  5. (10:07) Why do you think your online education model is more effective (according to the research) than one-on-one counseling?
  6. (10:40) Is the program for all types of Cancer?
  7. (11:57) Is there any reason the program couldn’t work for other chronic conditions like diabetes?
  8. (14:14) How does it work? Can you be anonymous?
  9. (15:28) Whats next? What do you have in store for 2016?
