Aortic Hope is excited to announce that we were nominated for: Best In Show: Facebook at WEGO Health!!!

Facebook is a community all its own. Over the past few years, it has transformed from a place for a personal profile to a real hub for discourse, conversation, and community. Who has the best Facebook Group or Page of anyone you know? Who utilizes Facebook Lives to amplify their patient advocacy? The winner of this category has balanced the ever-changing interface of Facebook and has turned it into an opportunity to reach more people. This Patient Leader fosters an environment where people want to "Like" and interact. They may have other social media sites, but he or she really utilizes all the tools Facebook has to offer and shows how it can be used for good!

"This group educates and increases awareness of aortic disease and allows others to appreciate the dramatic impact it can have on the lives of those afflicted and their loved ones. Through our work together we can turn many of these would-be emergency operations into safer elective procedures. We can educate the family of patients with aortic disease to get screened with echocardiography and CT or MRI imaging. And we can support those who carry these diagnoses along the way." 

~Ben Youdelman, MD, Director of the Maimonides Aortic Center, Brooklyn, New York
