The Empowerment Networks’ community – EnvelopHer — is moderated daily by paid moderators also known as guides, who are not regarded as health professionals. The selection of guides is informed by a variety of factors including but not limited to community participation and moderation experience, education or experience in the field of health, writing experience and first-hand experience with a health condition. In some circumstances, EnvelopHer may contact a medical expert to offer guidance in community areas including ASKs, SHAREs, Comments and Groups.
