#CPChatNow Recap- 05-01-2019

Much like a variety pack, the live cerebral palsy Twitter chat #CPChatNow offered quite the assortment Wednesday, May 1st, 2019. Rather than descriptive packaging though, you get me #CPChatNow co-host Zachary Fenell. I am here to recap the variation in discussion from our first May 2019 Twitter chat.

To start the dialogue, I asked participants what remained on their minds.

Participant Hailey tells about her plans to visit Amsterdam and more.

A familiar face to the chat Hailey surfaced to share her plans to visit Amsterdam. Additionally Hailey remained at work on meetings for her thesis. Factor in the five-hour time difference she now faces and you can easily understand her absence from #CPChatNow.

Another recognizable name stopped by the chat May 1st.

Jorge stops in and gives #CPChatNow a life update.

Soon to graduate Jorge popped in to give a life update. He mentioned competing in a Tough Mudder to round out his collegiate career. Meanwhile I told Jorge about my own competition coming up, a 10k for United Cerebral Palsy of Greater Cleveland’s Race to Empower.

Both a 10k and Tough Mudder offer their challenges. That leads to this week’s extend-the-conversation question. “How do you challenge yourself?” Leave your response in the “Comments.”

Challenges do not need to involve physical activity. As the chatter May 1st reminds us, various tasks can prove challenging.

#CPChatNow participants discuss the challenges of understanding scientific research.

For example, my co-host Devin Axtman and I each marveled at the intellectual challenges included in science. In-particular I theorized scientific vocabulary could intimidate. #CPChatNow’s resident scientist Timmy responded by saying “Then we failed as scientists when conveying our work to the general population.”

The entire science discussion emerged thanks to a potential focus chat idea. Stay tuned to our Twitter chat and our Facebook fan page for updates! Also remember to answer the week’s extend-the-conversation question. “How do you challenge yourself?”

Reply by commenting below! Then set a reminder to join us each and every Wednesday on Twitter, starting at 8pm ET.

Until next time, remember. Do not blend in. Blend out!
