When faced with our own illness or the illness of others dear to us, how can we keep the flame of hope burning, no matter what? How can we develop and maintain a positive attitude and keep hope alive when confronted by suffering?

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all.

– Emily Dickinson

Social Media Survey

Dear All,


Hope you have had an enjoyable summer. 


We are in the process of reviewing the Janki Foundation's social media content, which includes our website. 


Studies have indicated that different healthcare professionals have variable use of social media platforms, and they will make recommendations to patients or colleagues based on their confidence and reliability of information. In the current climate of healthcare crisis and information overload, we would benefit from an understanding on how spirituality-related information is accessed by healthcare professionals. This will enable us to focus our messages, events and outreach. 


We would greatly welcome your valuable thoughts through this survey. It is anonymous and will take less than 10 minutes to complete. 


Thank you.

Best wishes, 

JF Social Media Review Group
