Did you know that the prevalence of Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) is 1 in 250 (or more) with approximately 85% of patients undiagnosed or misdiagnosed?
What if every person with HCM had an accurate diagnosis, access to proper care and felt a little less “alone” by hearing from another patient’s experience?
You can help make this happen by using social media to share your experience living with HCM as an HCMA Ambassador.
The HCMA has established a program to help HCM patients, caregivers, and families learn best practices to optimize their social media postings, tracking, and engagement.
There are 4.76 billion social media users worldwide. That is 59.4 percent of the world’s population! With several different social media platforms – Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, etc. – you can, as an HCMA Ambassador, become instrumental in assisting better outcomes for HCM patients.
HCM patients are in every zip code, corner of the Earth, income bracket, race, ethnicity, gender and age.
Ready to find out more?
As an HCMA Ambassador, we will help you provide consistency in messaging and accuracy in scientific knowledge.
You can post about your HCM journey from diagnosis to the current day. You can post about your experience finding the proper medication, care provider, or exercise regimen. You can post about your worries and fears and how you overcame them in a way that will inspire others. You can post as little or as often as feels right for you.
