Twitter for Health

This is one of several slide presentations that were part of the "Evidence Base: Web 2.0 for Professional and Clinical Productivity" invited speaker session at the Medical Library Association Annual Meeting in May, with David Rothman and Patricia Anderson. This small set of slides has already attracted a surprising amount of attention.

First it was blogged by Andre Blackman, a public health professional, at his new blog "Pulse & Signal". There has been an interesting conversation going on in the comments section there.

Since then Slideshare put the presentation in the Spotlight on Health section on their homepage for several days earlier this week. Perhaps you'd like to take a look? We hope to offer an open class later this summer on the possibilities of Twitter for healthcare and research.
