Welcome MobiHealth DC Members
Last night, I attended an event put together by MobiHealth DC, a group for enthusiast of the mobile health revolution that is taking place in the health information technology arena. There are many exciting technologies and applications that will help health care consumers and ePatients. Check out the twitter feed #mobihealth for information on tools to assist in education, engagement and empowerment. With this post, however, I want to give a hello to the new folks I met during the networking and innovation showcase and provide a brief introduction to enBloom!
Posts on this blog take the time to look at illness and disease from a personal perspective like those featured in What Do You Do When You Are Diagnoses with Pancreatic Cancer Part I and Part II, I’m Not Gonna Need ‘Em When I’m Dead and Would You Have a Preventive Mastectomy. Other posts like Are You An ePatient and Doctors Appreciate The Active & Informed Patient encourage patients to be their own best advocates. We try to de-mistify bioethics with posts like Has The Time Come for Mandatory HIV/AIDS Testing and 5 Movie Picks With A Bioethics Theme that show how this seemingly ivory-tower issue really affect us in our everyday lives as health consumers. Also, we take time to examine the disparities that remain in healthcare delivery in posts like Do Ethnic Minorities Have Less Access to Cancer Screening, 5 Barriers to Minority Organ Donation and Increasing Awareness about the #1 Killer of Women as well as look at what research has to tell us about how disease presents in different populations demonstrated in Study Shows Asthma Coaches Reduce Hospitalization and Cancer Risk, Ethnicity & Race: Is It All in the Genes.
So welcome to enBloom, a blog improving health literacy for a body, mind, and spirit enBloom. Thanks for dropping by and be sure to give us your email to get regular updates.
