People With Chronic Illnesses Using Internet To Socialize
Even though people who have chronic conditions are less likely than others to have Internet access, once they are online, they are among the most likely to blog, participate in patient networking sites and seek health information online, according to a report from the Pew Internet and American Life Project and the California HealthCare Foundation. CHCF is the publisher of California Healthline.
