ICN E-Newsletter Offers The Latest IC News, Stories & More
The ICN E-Newsletter (Ezine) is the oldest and most widely distributed electronic IC newsletter on the web today. Created in 1997, it is written for both IC patients and careproviders and offers breaking IC news stories, the latest IC research, consumer safety alerts, IC event calendar, IC conference schedule, clinical trial announcements, CME's for medical care providers, self-help tips and and much more!
Our ICN E-Newsletter is usually sent out six times a year. We do occasional mailings for IC research centers seeking participants in their clinical trials and studies. Usually just twice a year (Spring and Fall), we send out ICN mailers announcing new IC resources. We do NOT send SPAM. Our mailing list is Opt-In/Opt-Out giving you, our reader, complete control of your account. You can unsubscribe at any time by using the unsubscribe links provided in every e-mail.

The IC Underground Blog
The IC Underground blog reflects "more" than just the status quo and/or official announcements that we usually see. We use it to reflect the more liberal tone of the IC Network. We are frustrated with the "conservative" IC movement because they forget that there are real patients involved. Imagine going to a conference where patient care is rarely discussed. It's as if we're an afterthought. So, this blog will be more patient focused.
A note from ICN Founder Jill Osborne - Every day we get emails and phones by the dozen asking "What's new in the IC world?" Our knowledge of IC seems to change and advance every few months and, if you're a smart patient, you'll make an effort to stay abreast of the latest news, clinical trials, research studies and, of course, new promising treatments. We offer three ways for you to do this: (1) ICN Subscriptions for our quarterly IC Optimist Magazine, (2) Our FREE e-newsletter, the oldest and most read newsletter on the web today and, (3) Our ICN Blog! As always, if you have any hot IC news or suggestions, we're all ears. Please send your ideas and feedback to me personally at: jill[a]ic-network.com
