Joseph Kvedar, MD reflecting on Symposium 2009 – Videos, Presentations, Twitter and more
I was thrilled to see such a great turnout at our 2009 Symposium, and would like to thank everyone who participated – attendees, sponsors and exhibitors, speakers, and the Center for Connected Health staff and volunteers who worked so hard to make this Symposium our best yet.
If you couldn’t attend this year’s event, check out the Symposium videos, presentations, news articles and more that are available to view on our website.
Another way to get a glimpse of the 2009 Symposium is to take a look at attendees’ Twitter comments. It is probably impossible to reduce two days of such rich interchange into a series of 140 character messages. Still, this was the first of our symposia where Twitter played such a dominant role. Several people who were unable to attend in person commented on how they felt a part of the proceedings by tuning their twitter search to #cch09 and following along. We’ve gone through all of the tweets that were sent those two days using the #cch09 hashtag and culled out the ones that we feel represent the most salient thoughts from the band of conference tweeters.
For those of you that attended, do you think the tweet stream captures the essence of what you took away? For those of you who did not attend, do you feel like you get a sense of the conference from reading these tweets? Read more and let me know your thoughts here.
