I’m flying to San Diego Tuesday afternoon for the American Medical Association’s 28th Annual Medical Communications Conference. I’m excited about serving on this panel partially because I’m acquainted a little with Craig Stoltz and Jason Bhan.
Craig is a former health editor for the Washington Post, a former editorial director for Revolution Health, and a sharp guy I’ve enjoyed talking with. Last week, Craig’s Web 2.Oh…really? blog was recognized by TIME magazine as one its “Top 25″- and Craig (rightly) responded with an excellent critique of the feature in a post titled “In Which I Unwisely Bite the Hand That Feeds Me.”
I’ve had the pleasure of a longish phone conversation with Dr. Jason Bhan, Chief Medical Officer of Ozmosis. We had intended to talk solely about Ozmosis, but we turned out to have a number of similar perspectives and I’m looking forward to chatting more with Dr. Bhan.
Some sessions I’m looking forward to attending:
* A medical/media professional’s guide to Advanced Google™: Tips for effective surfing
(Taught by medical librarian and LIS professor Dr. Ellen Detlefsen, PhD)
* Using the Internet to stay on top of medical information
(Also taught by Dr. Detlefsen)
* How, when, and (most importantly) why: Best practices for healthcare blogging
(Taught by Craig Stoltz)
So I probably won’t be blogging much this week…but reserve the right to change my mind.
If you’re going to be at the conference, please say hello!
