There’s a new online community out there called My Afib Experience. It’s meant to help people understand afib better, and to help people get more support.
The site is a collaboration between the American Heart Association, the American Stroke Association, and Stop Afib.org. There will be a lot of information on the site, including information on topics like healthy eating and dining out, exercise, travel, questions to ask doctors, and more.
According to MedicalExpress, users can create profiles based on their age, physical activity level, and other health factors so that they get personalized information about their own condition, which is a pretty cool feature. There are also member forums, downloadable guides, trackers, and other resources.
I was aware this site was launching but that I haven’t had a chance to check it out since it went live. I’m all for having as many resources as possible to help patients with afib so this new community is a welcome addition! I look forward to checking out the new site and participating in the community.
What about you? Have you gotten a chance to check out My Afib Experience yet? Have you found it to be a supportive, helpful resource? If so, please don’t hesitate to share your impressions of the site here. I’d love to hear more about the site and how it’s working for you.
