MLA 2008: Let's Face It - Using Social Tech to Build Consumer Health Web Sites

Social technologies are useful not just for connecting with community, but very practically in hosting content to support developing and maintaining your own web sites. At MLA 2008, we gave a presentation about one way we've been doing this.

MLA 2008: Eight module information curriculum matched to ACGME competencies

The presentation highlights one of the richest recent collaborations between the Health Sciences Libraries liaisons and the Medical School. Take a look, and think about what sort of educational support you would like the library to offer to support your competencies? We are hoping to expand this to the other health schools on campus, so please, do talk with your liaison for more information.

MLA 2008: 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.

Pulse & Signal: Healthy Possibilities with Twitter: http://pulseandsignal.com/2008/05/22/healthy-possibilities-with-twitter/

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.
