Argument Analysis: Online Support Groups

Good Essays
Enjoyed reading your post this week. You brought up a great point about the group forums during your discussion post. According to Diaz, Griffith, Ng, Reinert, Friedmann, and Moulton (2002) support groups/ social media forums whether it's in person or online has the ability to increased access to support. In my opinion I believe that online support groups regarding medical issues can reduce the sense of isolation for the individuals who are: afraid to leave the house, or reside in undeserved areas.
