Last weekend, April 2nd saw a very successful HealthCampCT@Yale School of Nursing. The event generated more than 1 million Tweet Impressions and reached over 85 people on Twitter.
The next step for HealthCamp is HealthCa.mp/dc this event will be held at the brand new #KPCTH Kaiser Permanente Center For Total Health – 700 Second St, NW, Washington DC. This is easy to get to by public transport. It is connected by a walkway from Union Station. Our theme for this event is “Vitality through Data.”
HealthCa.mp/dc takes place on June 8th, 2011. This is the day before the Community Health Data Initiative Forum that the Department of Health and Human Services is hosting at the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda.
The event is being coordinated with HHS. We are all set for a stimulating couple of days of innovation and discussion.
We are in the early planning stages of another exciting HealthCamp event in July, 2011. This will be sponsored by Kaiser Permanente and will focus on connecting HealthCamp with Food and Nutrition. Watch out for some exciting ideas in the evolution of HealthCamp.
