Participation Guidelines

If blogs and social networking sites like YouTube and Facebook are new to you, review the comment policy below for guidelines on what is appropriate to post. The Media Center also has the basics on how these tools work and how National Jewish Health has chosen to be involved.

We encourage your comments on National Jewish Health's various blogs and social media sites, and we hope you will join the discussions. However, we cannot respond to every comment. Please do not share personal health information on these sites. We recommend you adjust your privacy settings if you plan to list a health issue within your personal profile. We reserve the right to remove comments that are off-topic or clearly promoting a commercial product as we deem necessary. We also expect a basic level of civility; disagreements are fine, but mutual respect is a must, and profanity or abusive language are out-of-bounds. The more specific rules are found in our detailed comment policy below.

Please remember that when you post a comment to a blog or a social media site, it is published for the world to see. For your own privacy and that of your family, you should consider carefully how much detailed personal medical information linked to your name you want published on the Internet.
