#HDPalooza is just 9 days away. Come and say Hi in DC or Boston at a #HealthCampFire

Health Data goes main stream

The Health Data Palooza is less than 10 days away. It kicks off with a reception on Sunday June 1st and concludes on Tuesday June 3rd at the Marriott Wardman Park in Washington DC. (Registration Link:

I am excited to be joining the Consumer’s Circle to represent the views of the Patient and Consumer in Health.

Off to Boston

Before I get to Washington DC I have to visit Boston to do a Big Data presentation with Datastax. There may still be a few tickets left for the Lunch event. If you are in the Boston or Cambridge area on May 28-29th let me know. May be we can have an impromptu session. Watch for Tweets about this using #HealthCampFire.
