Sarah Kucharski and Kari Ulrich met each other on the Mayo Clinic Community Website. They discovered they have several things in common.
1. They both have been diagnosed with Fibromuscular Dysplasia, a rare vascular disease.
2. They both share of love of social media and have applied for a scholarship to be apart of Mayo's Social Media Summit.
"Mayo Clinic is sponsoring an essay contest to award five scholarships for patients and caregivers to attend our Third Annual Health Care Social Media Summit and related events during the week of Oct. 17, 2011.
Voting on the community site continues until midnight Aug. 17, at which point Mayo's panel of judges will select the five scholarship recipients from among 15 finalists."
