Share Your Story

Social media is a quick and effective way to share your story and reach a large audience. All U.S. Members of Congress as well as international policymakers are active on social media platforms. As a community that cares about hormone health, using our digital strength can have a lasting impact. Be an advocate on social media using these tips:

  • Write a post on their Facebook wall.
  • Send them a Tweet to promote your message or thank them for addressing your concerns.
  • Remember that hashtags increase your visibility. You can use hashtags such as #SupportNIH, #Diabetes, etc.

Sample Tweets:

sample
  • "Thank you @LegislatorX for your support of science & #NIH funding" 
  • "@LegislatorX, I am a patient living with type 2 Diabetes. We need more funding for #diabetes research, not less. Please support #research!" 
  • "LegislatorX, research saves lives! Support science. Fund #MedicalResearch"
