In recent years, there has been an alarming rise in illnesses that defy diagnosis or have no known cure. Millions of people, especially women, with illnesses such as irritable bowel syndrome, chronic pain, and chronic fatigue syndrome face skepticism from physicians and the public alike.
Through research and patient narratives, health writer Lauri Edwards explores patient rights, the role of social media in medical advocacy, the origins of our attitudes about chronic illness, and more.
The public is invited!
