Great media and Web 2.0 are the new health! I love the spate of health 2.0 communities popping up - it's empowering and people are bound to benefit.

I don't see any patient bloggers or representatives of "organic" patient groups on the agenda here. Or am I missing something?

Apologies for slow response, been real busy with the move.

We have Elisa Cooper speaking as patient advocate on Open Healthcare panel, plus the non-profits like ACS, LLS and NMSS represent patient perspective as well.

Besides Amy, remember that I invited you to be a speaker too!

Wow! I wish I had known about this earlier. I have one of the few consistently written blogs in the chiropractic community and this would have been an amazing experience. I will be there in blogging spirit! I have found my healthcare blog to have been an amazing experience, and an excellent way to meet many new patients, as well as people from all over the world with questions. I will set the time aside for next year!

Bloggers really have an important role in our future and for the future journalism(t). This is just the beginning of the blog rules... In the future this would make bigger reactions.

this has been a long time coming. It is a great idea to put this info online so that the average person can get an inside view of the current health care profession. It may slow down litigation, bring public awareness and benefit everyone as a whole.

Blog your trail into the future.

When you're in a not good position and have no money to get out from that point, you would have to take the credit loans. Because that will aid you definitely. I get college loan every year and feel OK just because of this.
