A US-based doctor, Nirmalya Roychowdhury, has launched a website to help patients all over the globe network and learn from each other. “No one can be of greater help to a patient than a fellow patient who is going through the same sufferings. Hope Chain is created to help patients and their families to interact, share views and build a chain of hope for a healthy life,” says the home page of the site, which has a wonderfully uncluttered look – itself very soothing for the patient. It is also easy to navigate, with a detailed listing of various disorders.
You can visit Hope Chain from the home page of this blog; click on ‘networking site for patients’ in the column on the right, under Disabilities and Health links.
