RA Patient Map

Do you want to connect with other RA warriors?

Living in a small town in northern New Mexico, there aren't many opportunities to reach out and meet with other people who have RA. I have compensated for this by talking to other RAers online and I have found an amazing group of people who always make me laugh! 

But sometimes I feel quite isolated. The people who really understand what I'm going through live in other states and other countries. How nice would it be to have an RA BFF who lives nearby, someone I could meet face to face? In all the support groups and forums I have participated in, people are asking each other where they live.

Wouldn't it be great to have one place we could go to see where our online friends live and to find out who lives near us? Enter the RA Patient Map.

Join the RA Patient Map!  

2. Click "Additions" then "Add Marker-Simple" 
3. Type your email, name and city, state
4. Click "Submit"
5. Then double click on your new marker to add more info!
     Ý Add your website, blog, or list more information about your RA and related conditions in the description field. Most fields are optional so you can add as much or as little info as you want.

You don't have to use your full name or physical address, but since the idea is to be able to contact those close to us, it would be nice to have some way to get in touch. If you want to be more private, use your first name only and a nondescript email address. You can always go back to the map later and change what information is connected to your marker.

Be sure to share the map so we can get more people added!  You can publish the map into your blog or other website by clicking Print or Share, then Publish in Website, choose the options you want on your map, then copy the code into your website.
