Being the Voice of Experience

HUMANA LOGOWhen someone emails you; introduces themselves as a writer; and indicates that they are contacting you as a subject matter expert, you read the email.  Actually, you read the email, respond to it, and pick up the telephone to call the writer.

This very thing recently happened to me when a writer contacted me and asked if I’d be willing to be interviewed for an article she was writing for Humana.  The  piece is entitled   “New Sensory Signals Bring Prostheses to Life” and I delighted that the writer so eloquently and succinctly summarized my opinion as to the importance of well-fitting and well-performing prostheses in that she wrote:  “Pitt Schneider believes a well-performing prosthesis, sooner or later, can help a patient think less about his or her prosthesis.  ‘It can put them back into that pre-limb loss mindset, which then ultimately helps them to accept their limb loss, move forward and know that life can go on.'”

Grateful for the reminder that we all have voices that, when used appropriately, can open eyes and educate minds.
