I’d love to see an event focused on health and social media. There are lots of public health pros and health reporters who are very active in social media networks.

Hi Michelle – we did an event in February 2009 all about health 2.0 (http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=46676909982&index=1) – but we can definitely use an update!

Thanks for your reply! That event was on health care, which is different. I mean public health… using social media to track outbreaks like H1N1, foodborne illnesses, and other issues that impact public health.
