Going Viral against HIV and STIs

I’m delighted this morning to be joining my friend Susannah Fox and many others at this one-day conference sponsored by the New York State Department of Health, and hopefully helping to encourage many of the participants to apply social media in their work. I will be sharing our Mayo Clinic experience with social media and also discussing our new Center for Social Media and the Social Media Health Network.

Because I will be moving really rapidly through the presentation, I’m embedding the slides below:

Meredith Gould: Great Humanitarian

Here’s a little story about the power of Twitter and the communities it helps to create, and the nice people it enables you to meet.

Earlier this week I attended the e-Patient Connections conference in Philadelphia, where I presented our Mayo Clinic social media case study.

Unfortunately, when I got to the airport (I had to leave just after lunch), I realized that I had left my Flip video camera on the podium at the conference. The video below tells what happened next, and expresses my gratitude:

The conference was a great chance for me to meet lots of great Tweeps with whom I had only interacted via Twitter and our blogs, including, in addition to @MeredithGould@danamlewis, @daphneleigh, @philbaumann, @ePatientDave, @whydotpharma and @SusannahFox. I met several more with whom I hadn’t interacted previously, but look forward to getting to know in the coming months.

Thanks to @kevinkruse for organizing a great conference, and again to Meredith for her Philadelphia airlift.
