BlogWorld/New Media Expo 2010: Medbloggers + Las Vegas, Part Deux!

BlogWorld BadgeWe did it before, and we’re doing it again!

The medblogger track (aka: Social Health) is on for this year’s BlogWorld/New Media Expo!


WHO should attend?


  • Doctors, nurses, patients
  • physician assistants, dentists, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, paramedics
  • medical students, nursing students
  • health care administrators, health care company employees and executives…

In other words….YOU!


WHY should you attend?

If you have any interest in social media on a personal or professional level (blogs, podcasting, Blog Talk Radio, Facebook, Twitter, vlogging), this is the place to be!


WHAT is new in the Social Health track at BlogWorld/New Media Expo?

  • Breakout sessions!
    • Social Networks and the Medical Blogosphere: Compatible or Competitive?
    • Patient Blogging and Disease Awareness: Sickness and Health on the Web
    • Health Care and Social Media: Industry Issues
    • How Social Media is Being Used to Improve Health
  • “White Board” open discussion on health care and social media


HOW can we do this?

The Social Health track is made possible by remarkable sponsors! Without them, this does not happen! Join me in thanking:

Johnson & Johnson was there when the idea of a “medblogger track” was just a gleam in a blogger’s eye! They provided sponsorship for our inaugural get-together,and we welcome (and thank) them again this year!

Also with us since the inaugural medblogger track is MedPage Today, and they are returning once again, providing valuable support and we continue to expand the Social Health track offerings!


They asked what we wanted most during last year’s track. What were we missing? Thanks to our feedback, the JNJ Campaign for Nursing’s Future will be providing snacks and (bless them!) plenty of charging stations! Bring your iPhones, laptops, netbooks, iPads, Blackberries and keep them powered up at the conference!


SHOW me the money!

Discount codes  I haz dem.There is a discount available for Social Health track participants!

Discount codes are available for $195 off the registration price, making the cost of the Social Media track only $200 if you register by September 16th!

(This discount applies to any registration packet you choose, so if you want to stay for the entire conference – and I definitely recommend it! – you just take $195 off that price!)

How do you get the code?

From me!

I have individual, personalized codes for those interested in receiving the discount.

Send me an email via the contact button at the top of this page and please put BLOGWORLD DISCOUNT CODE in the subject line so I am sure to see it. I’ll send you a personal registration code to use. I have a limited number of these to give out, so don’t wait!

BlogWorld/New Media Expo 2010 registration is open now.


I’ll keep this page up on the blog under the “Blogworld” button and will update it with new information.

Look forward to seeing you at the second annual BlogWorld/New Media Expo 2010 Social Health track!

    We can now take our bloggings and come together with them – You wonder, will there be more written signs on the tables than at most conventions??? 🙂
