Nijmegen: A Trip into the World of Health 2.0

Lucien Engelen invited me to give a presentation at a Health 2.0 event in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. I spent 3 wonderful days there and the attendants seemed to be very open to the world of health 2.0.

Lucien and me

I had a Second Life workshop where I talk about the medical implications of the virtual world. Then also had a presentation where I focused on e-patients. I hope I can publish the slideshow tomorrow.


Preparations for my Second Life workshop

I met great people there so what I can say to my Dutch friends: Dank u well!!

This Tuesday, I got a chance to do a podcast with Clifford Mintz and Vincent Racaniello who are behind BioCrowd, a social network for bioscience professionals.


I really enjoyed the conversation that you can download here, as Cliff and Vincent have great ideas about the future of medicine.

Greetings from Long Beach, CA

Just like a year ago, now I’m attending the Medicine Meets Virtual Reality 17 conference and I’m quite happy to be here again. Long Beach is warm enough after the central-european winter.  This year, I got the honor to be in the organizing committee and I’ve been conducting interviews with famous presenters for the MMVR17 blog.

In the next 4 days, I will blog and tweet live about what’s happening in the leading conference focusing on medical technology and simulations.


On Wednesday, I will talk about how practicing medicine will change in the web 2.0 era and will do a workshop about the medical islands of Second Life.

Follow Scienceroll or my Twitter account for more.

And let me know if you are around and would like to meet.
