Mayo Clinic is one of the health institutes that has been open to web 2.0 for years now. Here is another reason for that, patient stories shared via Youtube.
Lee Aase, manager of Syndication and Social Media for Mayo Clinic, will attend the Dutch event (one of the best health 2.0 events this year in Europe) on the 12th and 13th of October organized by Lucien Engelen. I will also be there.

Genes don’t just tell whom you’re related to or why you look a certain way; now, they can also tell you where you came from. Researchers have created a genetic map of Europe, and they hope to expand it globally, as this ScienCentral News video explains.
I wanted to share two new, medicine-related Youtube channels with you. The first one is managed by the Detroit Medical Center and focuses on medical animations, educational materials.
The second one was launched by Mark Senak, the blogger of Eye on FDA and focuses on:
The eyeonfda channel is an extension of my Weblog http://www.eyeonfda.com and is designed to collect video of interest to the pharmaceutical, biotech and public health communities and meant to aggregate health care videos along disease and issue specific lines.
Clinical Cases and Images shared this link with me. The Health Sciences Library of the University of Buffalo has recently started an own Youtube channel with a variety of tutorials and answers to FAQs. You can subscribe to it here.
At this point, there are 5 videos there:
This is a good example about how to educate with the tools of web 2.0 and how to get physicians, medical students or other medical librarians closer to your institute.
