I wanted to give some updates on what I have been working on since this year I haven’t published as many articles as previous years…here’s what I’ve been up to
A very special App!
UPDATE: MARCH 10, 2022
**App is in Beta testing!!!**
The project that has been taking the majority of my time is a mobile app. Healthy Hooha is in the development phase of an app that is going to revolutionize vulvovaginal & female sexual health!! I know that doesn’t tell you anything about what the app is, I have to keep things hush hush for now but trust me you are going to freak!
I presented at the ISSWSH 2022 Annual Conference in Dallas Texas!!
I was honored to be presenting 2 pieces
- A 25 min talk on patients Online Health Information Seeking
- My abstract poster on A Novel Approach to Preventing Recurrent UTI’s and Urogenital Syndrome
Both are posted on my site under Articles but the titles above are also linked to the posts
I will be giving an expanded presentation on my abstract on “A Novel Approach to Preventing Recurrent UTI’s and Urogenital Syndrome” to the Medical Student Forum on Female Sexual Medicine in April
I am co-planning on creating a Patient Advocate organization
While there are other organizations for ‘Patient Advocates’ they are typically for the type who are employed by clinics or hospital systems to perform specific duties such as assistance with insurance or other clerical duties that the patient may be unable to perform. The organization that I and my other Patient Advocates want to create is one that is for advocates who do much other their fabulous work on the internet-helping people outside of the clinic/hospital space such as in support groups/subs, and for advocates who help spread evidence based information on social media, as well as give presentations, attend conferences, and other volunteer work simply being a voice for those we interact with online
And as usual I have a whole long list of articles I want to write
Clinician Reference Toolkits
I am creating simple reference material for clinics and hospitals to have on hand for the various vulvovaginal & sexual health conditions that are seemingly more difficult to get diagnosed (as well as the common ones) but since we typically have to see so many clinicians in order to find one that has experience with things other than BV/YI, going up the ladder of knowledge and expertise each time, I thought I would partner with various Medical Systems to implement these reference materials to not only use as memory refreshing when a patient comes in but for those who may be unfamiliar with such conditions so they may be more valuable to a struggling patient in getting a diagnosis!
