Medbloggers Needed for BlogWorld Expo

This is very exciting news!

We have an opportunity to meet as a med-blogging group at this year’s BlogWorld.

For those of us who have wanted a chance to have a med-blogger meet up, this is an opportunity to meet under the auspices of BlogWorld .

I spoke to Rick Calvert, the CEO and Co-Founder of Blog World and New Media Expo.

Here are our opportunities:

  • We can do a panel presentation. Would you be willing to sit on a panel?

Here were some of my ideas:

a. Navigating HIPAA laws

b. Healthcare through the eyes of a doctor, nurse and patient

c. Healthcare Blogger Code of Ethics – discussion

d. Universal Health Care – a feasible proposition?

e. To Be or Not To Be – the case for blogging under your own name


  • We can meet in a breakout breakfast or lunch get-together.

This will set the groundwork for having a full track of med-blogger topics at next year’s BlogWorld.

I will be going to BlogWorld and am very excited about the opportunities it will give us as medbloggers to meet and discuss issues specific to our community.

Please let me know (a) if you will be able to attend, (b) are you willing to sit on a panel and (c) which topic you think is best.

I have to know by Thursday, as this opportunity has just opened up and time is of the essence. Please email me (Contact button above) or comment here on Emergiblog.

This is BIG, folks, and I’m ecstatic!

Join me!

    I am very interested in attending! And I think these are all good topics, although I would avoid the topic of universal healthcare, because I think it might be too polarizing to actually get anything accomplished.
