The Story Behind Immune Competence

Sitting in the Detroit airport one day, Colin was grabbing dinner while waiting on his flight home. He was frustrated as he scrolled through social media seeing the same questions being asked over and over again by other patients with a Primary Immunodeficiency. The amount of misinformation and aggressive answers  were nothing new, but no matter how many times he tried to answer questions, it did nothing. No one seemed to be helping provide the day-to-day information needed to live with a chronic illness. 

Colin saw Lisa was on Facebook Messenger and vented his frustration that there never seems to be a dent in the needed information. Lisa agreed and that is when the brainstorming ensued. Over the next couple of months, Lisa and Colin went back and forth with ideas and eventually the idea of Immune Competence came to fruition. The idea being that even someone with a Primary Immunodeficiency disease can live a full life with the right information. Our goal is to help fill in the missing pieces. 

The vision of Immune Competence is to source topics and other authors from the greater P.I. community. With a strong network, we hope to add additional content needed in the community.
