My name is Annie Chen, and I am an assistant professor at the University of Washington School of Medicine. I'd like to share with you a new study we're conducting, on “body listening”.
The study takes the form of a collaborative repository which participants will build with moderators by engaging in a ten-week Guided Exploration. The act of “body listening” is one that people may engage in regardless of who they are. An experience like having a long-term illness, though, may lead a person to learn to become aware of and listen to body signals and cues more than they might have otherwise.
This project is intended for anyone who is interested in, or would like to contribute to knowledge on the phenomenon of “body listening.” If you choose to participate, you might share how you learned what could trigger pain for you, or how you learned to recognize food sensitivities. This collaborative space is a place where you can post experiences concerning body listening and share with others how you learned/are learning to do it, as well as learn from others.
The stories that you share may be helpful for the health care community and for other patients to understand more about
the information you needed to get where you are now, and the information you still need. In this way, we hope we can work together to improve people’s ability to manage their health. Please visit our site and participate in the effort to create a new knowledge resource on body listening!
