mainlogo-with-date.jpg National Chronic Invisible Illness Week is scheduled for September 8 – 14th 2008. This is a week long event of online conferences with experts in the field of chronic illness. Last year there were talks about working when you are sick, how to cope with your illness, going to school with a chronic illness, blogging, parenting, Social Security Disability and so much more. Some of the speakers from last year were, Christine Miserandino from You Don’t Look Sick, Rosalind Joffe from cicoach.com and Jenni Propoxi of Chronic Babe.

This event is held by Rest Ministries. They have products for sale for this year’s conference including company logo shirts, coffee mugs and tote bags. Help spread the word by signing up for a newsletter and keep updated on the speakers and events. You can also help by making a donation.

I look forward to the week every year. If you have a chronic illness or know someone who has, there is something of interest for you.
