Coming up in March and April - SxSW, 30 blog posts in April!

SxSW is an amazing conference that takes place in Austin Texas that brings together awesome people in Interactive Media, Film, software and all kinds of geeky fun creative and innovative talking, walking, an all-around festival for the mind and spirit. AND I'll be speaking on the Health as a Team Sport Panel on 3/13 9:30 am Classroom 204 - do you get that I would REALLY REALLY like you to come see, or listen in? 

Here's the panel description. I'll be joining Dr. Ahmed Calvo from the US Dept of Health and Human Services - HRSA  Health Resource Services Administration - he is a pioneer in thinking about Community health and the Senior Medical Officer for Disparity (reduction as in "all folks are created equal and therefore entitled to services irregardless"). Our third panelist is Dr. Michael Dineen from the US Dept of Defense - he's the director of Strategy Management for the Military Health System and he coined the term "Health as a Team Sport" , very cool notion you need to learn more about.I'll be talking about Learning and Games in service of our Health.


The Health Activist Writer's Month Challenge hosted by WEGO Health. I will be writing a post a day for all 30 days. I hope you'll join me in writing every day about health. It's going to be a lot of fun and I'd love to see what you have to say about each of the topics, too. All you have to do to join is sign up here:http://info.wegohealth.com/HAWMC2012 and you'll be able to start posting once April rolls around. Looking forward to writing with you!
