Hi. My name is Jennifer. I am currently going to YSU and major in Social Work. I have a Social Work Health Issues class and in it we are to do a group paper and presentation on special topics of which my group chose to do Systemic Lupus. My part of the paper is to interview someone with Lupus and in essence get educated on the effects it has physically, emotionally, mentally, even financially. We hope to bring more education and awareness of the disease to us as well as the rest of the class, so that we can further bring knowledge to potential clients one day. I am asking if there is anyone that would be willing to volunteer their time by allowing me to interview them via phone or face to face if that's feasible given that I am near Youngstown Ohio. Thanks for your time and consideration and I look forward to hearing from you :)

Hi! Jennifer,
I think you and your group picked a great topic. I am a retired nursing instructor, was an ICU nurse for 21 yrs, and taught in a LPN program and career and technical high school ( Health Occupations and CNA), for 15 yrs.  I would be more than willing to help in any way I could. Have fun with your research, knowledge gives us power yeah

Thank You. I appreciate it. We are just getting started with the research. This seems to be an excellent site for information. Ive passed it along to the other member of the groups, as well. I'll be sure to contact you for any professional opinion, information, or experience you might have. Thanks again :)

Jennifer

We are not professionals, so don't rely on us for anything but personal experience!! :-)

I would be willing to have a phone interview, i live in NC so it might be a little difficult for face to face!

Hi Amy!!

Great!!! I have to get some information gathered and I'm still doing a little research. I would like to somewhat know what I'm talking about when I'm asking questions :) if you could email your contact information whenever you can. If you would like any more information from me or if I could do anything more in making the interview comfortable, please feel free to let me know. I would be able to happy to accommodate any questions or contact information you may have for me. Thanks again. I'll be in touch

Thanks for the resource information. I understand with members that are not professionals, I am to gain knowledge through experience. It was great to get a nurse to volunteer professional experience, as well.

I appreciate your help.

Just a Gurl,

To find the contact info, look at the left of the screen under the user name of people who have posted here. You'll see most of them have email available -- the little envelop icon is colored blue & yellow.

I highly recommend you edit your email out of your post so spammers don't get a hold of it -- put it in your profile & your envelop will turn colors too!

Hi Jennifer,

I havn't been here for a while but just saw your post. I would love to help if you would like to speak with me, my email is in my profile. I am one of the rare few my doctor has seen with the combo I have...I still baffle them.

I am back in school now for Medical Social Work. I look forward to hearing from you.
