Wish me Luck

What can one person do? Quite a bit.  Have you ever seen Regina Holliday's artwork, or listen to ePatient Dave talk?

My own "pet project" is Health System Literacy Education.  I was inspired by what I could teach my youngest daughter to develop an outline for the content.  I worked within my town last year on a health literacy project sponsored by one of the community grants made available through my community health network.

Now it is time to put the grant together.  This morning I took a couple of hours off my day job to talk with other CHNA members about should go in the proposal.  This afternoon I talk to my local head of public health who has also expressed interest.  And this evening I go (with my eldest daughter) in battle gear to an information session for proposal writers to drum up support.

Last weekend my eldest and I spoke to a number of folks about what needs to go into the educational content, and drummed up some content experts to help develop materials.

I don't know what will happen, but already I've drummed up just enough excitement to see this idea move on to the next stage.  Wish me luck.

Oh, and if you want to help with content, or support, or anything else (even just to wish me luck), drop me a message or comment below.


  1. For what it's worth, I pitched this twice today, and got two good solid hits.
