I’ll be moderating a Google+ Hangout tomorrow night (9pm eastern) featuring a few of the ePatients who attended Medicine X last year. We’ll be discussing the application process, our thoughts on last year’s event, and field questions from Twitter – all in an hour.
Honestly, I’m not sure what to expect. I haven’t done a “group podcast” in a while, and those are audio only. I’m expecting at least one moment of kittens on the webcam, and I’ll do my best to pay attention to what I’m doing on screen, since I’ll be the guy keeping everything moving.
This thing is meant for the people who have already applied and the people on the fence, but I’m going to do my part to make sure you fence sitters get a genuine look at what this conference is all about. Believe me, I was just like you before I submitted my application. I didn’t think I deserved to be there. I didn’t think my voice was worth hearing. I didn’t think I had anything to offer.
I was wrong.
Nick Dawson has all the details on his blog and I’ll do my fair share of promoting over the next twenty four hours. And, since it’s a Hangout, there will be an archived video for your viewing/listening pleasure if you’re interested but won’t be able to follow the shenanigans live.
And if you’re interested in applying, head over to medicinex.stanford.edu.
