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.

Lucien Engelen invited me to give a presentation about “the future of medicine in the web 2.0 world” this Tuesday (March, 24) in Nijmegen at a Health 2.0 event that will promote a great new site for acut care, AcuteZorg.nl. I will also do a Second Life workshop.
There will be a tweetup the night before the event. See you there!
I’m glad to announce I will make the newest Webicina.com medical web 2.0 guidance package public during my keynote. The topic, based on your votes, is depression, so be ready for the Depression 2.0 package. You may remember the Diabetes 2.0 package as well.
I hope I can tweet and blog live from Nijmegen (will stay there between 23-35 March).
I really enjoyed the conversation that you can download here, as Cliff and Vincent have great ideas about the future of medicine.
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.
And let me know if you are around and would like to meet.
