Step 2: Finding and Joining Communities
What Are Communities?
On WeHeal, we have over 500 communities dedicated to specific diseases and health and wellness topics. Our communities are a social platform that allow you to ask questions connect with others who are involved in treating or are afflicted by the same disease as yourself.
You can use WeHeal communities to share strategies, remedies, treatments, or just seek support or ask questions. Once you have joined a community, you can post questions or links, talk to other members, and set whatever notification schedule you want, if any, from that community.
To locate the Community Index, hover your mouse over the “WeHeal Communities” menu off of our main navigation bar.
Once the menu drops down, click on “Community Index” and you will be taken to the Community Index where you can find communities listed from A-Z you may join or learn more about.
Joining a Community
To join a community, simply click on the disease or topic you are interested in from the Community Index. Once you are on your desired community page, click the red “Join Community” button near the top of the page.
(NOTE: You must join a community before being able to post on its page)
Once you have joined a community, you will see a green notification letting you know you are now a member of that community.
As a member of a community, you can now create and share posts, interact with other users of the same community, and receive email notifications from your community.
Community Email Options
Once you are a member of a community, you will automatically be set to receive all email notifications from your community.
If you would like to change this, click the “change” button next to “Your email status is” and you can choose between a variety of email options.

“Daily Digest” = You will receive one email a day with a summary of your community’s daily activity.
“All Email” = You will receive all email notifications from your community as interactions occur on our website.
Posting in a Community
To post in a community, locate the post box at the top of your community page. There is a entry box for text and an entry box for internet links if you would like to include links to other website pages.
To make a post, simply click inside the entry box and type out your post. Once you are finished, click the red “Post Now” button.
After your post has been published, you may view it below the post box on your community newsfeed.
Leaving a Community
If you are no longer interested in a disease or topic, you may choose to leave the community.
Once you leave a community, you will not be able to post or interact with users in the community you are leaving.
To leave a community, click the grey “Leave Community” button located near the top of your community page.
(NOTE: You may re-join and leave communities as many times as you please)
Step 3: Information Pages
What Are Information Pages?
Just like WeHeal communities, we have over 500 corresponding information pages about diseases and health and wellness topics. Our information pages give users a quick introduction to the topic and provide other informational resources.
Every information page provides links to outside information references such as Mayo Clinic, WebMD, and Wikipedia. They also include links to related clinical trial and organization websites.

At the top of every information page, there is a link that will return you to its corresponding community page.
If you would like to return to a community page, locate the blue “Please Visit and Join the WeHeal Community” link at the top of the information page and click on it.
