On Monday I start a marathon series of events in two cities and two coasts that will keep me busy for the next 10 days.
SXSH Social Health
#SXSH Social Health on 9.19.11 in Philadelphia I will be helping to facilitate the un-conference sessions at this event. One of the sponsors, GE's IsMyCancerDifferent.com is launching an education campaign. This is the first molecular diagnostics educational portal for patients. If you can't be at #SXSH SocialHEalth you can join in the launch announcement via a live webcast at 12:45pm EST. Click here to join the webcast.
ePatients Connections 2011 Conference
The ePatients Connections Conference (#ePatCon) takes place on 9.20 and 9.21 in Philadelphia where I am helping to run the Social Media corner.
Then I am flying out to San Francisco to join the San Francisco Health Innovation Week which includes preparing for and facilitating HealthCamp SFBay on 9.23.11 at the world renowned Kaiser Permanente Sidney R. Garfield Innovation Center in San Leandro.
We still have a few tickets available for this exciting event so sign up today. We have Dr. Alan Greene and Dr. Preston Maring opening the event and they will be talking about innovation and the critical role of food and nutrition in achieving and maintaining good health. We also have a fascinating Quantified Self track at the event. This is truly a Health Innovation Mashup Event that brings together innovators from all walks of life to effect positive change in Health.
Health 2.0 Developer Challenge
On Saturday I am busy with the Health 2.0 Developer Challenge. I want to see if we can pull together a team to create a Green Button implementation that builds on the pioneering Blue Button work started by The Department of Health and Human Services and the Veterans Administration.
If you are in San Francisco on Saturday September 24th why not join us to form a Green Button Team.
There is also a Disposable Film Festival Create-a-thon happening on Saturday September 24th. I wish I could take part in that too, along with Regina Holliday, since we have been conspiring on some exciting Rainbow Button Initiative efforts.
On Sunday Afternoon, September 25th, the Health 2.0 Conference swings in to action with a series of pre-conference workshops. This includes the Patients 2.0 Workshop. This is something I have been supporting through a series of pre-event team activities. A lot of volunteers have done some great work since the Health 2.0 Spring Fling to move the Patients 2.0 initiative forward and at the workshop a lot of that activity will be presented to get input from the attendees.
On September 26 and 27th the Health 2.0 Fall Conference takes place. I will be blogging from the event.
If you are at any of these events come and say hello.
