Now this is an historic moment… I finally get to meet my hero medblogger Gene Ostrovsky, editor and webmaster of Medgadget.com at a blogger conference tomorrow in Washington, DC. Gene is driving in from NYC and we’ll plan to have dinner with hubby and any other folks we can lure from the all-star conference:
Welcome and Introduction Drew Altman, President and Chief Executive Officer, Kaiser Family Foundation
Keynote Address The Honorable Michael O. Leavitt Secretary, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
Panel Discussion Vicky Rideout (moderator) Vice President, Kaiser Family Foundation and Director, Kaiser Forum on Health Journalism and the News Business
Jacob Goldstein, Wall Street Journal
Michael Cannon, Cato Institute
Ezra Klein, American Prospect Magazine
John McDonough, Office of Senator Edward Kennedy and formerly of Health Care for All in Massachusetts
Tom Rosenstiel, Center for Excellence in Journalism
I’ve spent the last year and a half producing a weekly newsletter featuring the best of Medgadget’s posts – this one about the asthma inhaler “spacer piggie” is just one example of the innovative gadgets that Gene has enthusiastically gathered into one place for geeks like me. So it will be fun to meet the man behind the piggies… See you tomorrow, Gene.
Anyone else care to join us?
