Pamela Sloate

Patient Leader

Pamela's passion is raising awareness of Dystonia, the rare neurological disorder she's battled for 40+ years, while empowering others to embrace activism. In addition to maintaining her blog - Chronicles Of A Dystonia Muse - and Facebook group - Dystonia BloggerMania - Pamela lends herself to an array of on and offline awareness efforts, moderates a patient support group in New York City, advocates for Dystonia, and advances fundraising. All of Pamela's activities evince her determination to showcase a positive perspective and offer fellow patients a bit of comic relief. Her website goes beyond Dystonia to paint a readily understandable and entirely human picture of life with disability.
