The Sjögren’s Foundation has produced a video series on Sjögren’s disease called Exploring Sjögren’s. If you have not seen the YouTube channel, Exploring Sjögren’s, you really must take a look! The channel is the brainchild of Steve Taylor, Sjögren’s Foundation CEO and Brad Lemack, a fellow patient, great guy, and artist’s agent. In other words, Brad knows a thing or two about making videos! This past Fall/Winter the planning and footage was shot and post-production followed. Take a look …
The first six videos are each dedicated to exploring Sjögren’s in a different way. For example, topics range from Clinical Trials to Pregnancy and Sjögren’s. I’m in a couple of them along with other patients and doctors. It’s a great mix of education and patient voices that can corroborate how we all feel every day.
Episode 1 is embedded below and is an introduction to Sjögren’s. This is a great video to share with friends and family to help them understand more about the disease. It is a professional and authoritative video source that presents the information clearly. It allows us, as patients, to save some emotional energy explaining our disease to friends and family! A really good first step to share with others.
Exploring Sjögren’s Channel can be found here. Be sure to view them all and share them on your own social. It’s a good way to learn and help spread the word about Sjögren’s Disease.
