If I were to write a book, it would be based on being a healthcare advocate. I’ve become one for myself, have tried to help others through this blog and now am an advocate for my daughter, who has been diagnosed with cardiac conditions and a sleeping disorder. The Title would be – Healthcare Advocacy Changes Lives (not very creative, but inspiring). Why am I writing about this?

As part of the Health Activist Writer’s Month Challenge, I’ll be writing here every day. My first prompt is – “Titles of my future book. Say you’re writing a book about your life, community, condition, or Health Activism. Come up with 5 working titles and a quick book jacket synopsis.”

For the quick synopsis of Healthcare Advocacy Changes Lives, it would read something like this – Multiple medical conditions changed her life, but she decided to take control of her healthcare and teach others to do the same. Connie Roberts teaches you that being an advocate can give you confidence and even save your life.

Some other book titles:

  • Who Says You Aren’t Sick? (for those of us who have difficulty getting a definitive diagnosis)
  • Your Doctor isn’t God
  • Don’t Be Afraid to Ask Medical Questions
  • Being Tired All the Time Isn’t Normal

What type of book would you write and what would the title be?

  2. Well-done. Thank you. Thank you both for writing it, sharing it and creating this whole site around it. I’ve blogged twice about your book already and I’m only on page 6. I’m sure I’ll blog again about your book. Thanks, again.
