Voting and Chronic Illness



Unless you've been living under a rock, you know that there is an election coming in the US. We all have opinions about it, but that is not what my new post for HealthCentral is about. It's about the obstacles that people with chronic illness may face during the election process and what you can do to make sure your voice is heard:

"One month from now, one of the most beautiful things about democracy in action will happen. All over the nation, citizens will go to the polls and cast their vote. This will decide the next president of the United States, as well as a number of state and local government officials.

As a person with a chronic illness, you have some unique challenges as you prepare to cast your vote. Your chronic illness may be unpredictable or limit your mobility.
