Medicine 2.0 conference coming to Stanford next year

Medicine 2.0, an international conference on the use of web applications and social media in biomedical research and health-care delivery, is coming to the School of Medicine on September 16, 2011. The conference will run for three days.

Leading up to the conference, the program committee will be curating a conversation about Medicine 2.0. Larry Chu, MD, the principal organizer and an assistant professor of anesthesia, writes on the Medicine 2.0 blog:

Part of this dialogue is also to introduce new voices to the discussion and share what others see as important goals and objectives for the Fourth World Congress on Social Media and Web 2.0 in Health, Medicine and Biomedical Research. The first voice, in a series of "Why Medicine 2.0?" videos produced by the AIM lab at Stanford, is Jenn Stringer, Director of Educational Technology at the Stanford University School of Medicine.

An overview of the conference is available here, and an introductory video is also available here. More details to follow.
