HealthCamp keeps growing. Today (June 21, 2011) A planning team will be discussing HealthCa.mp/la. The Los Angeles HealthCamp, which is being supported by Kaiser Permanente, is being planned for November. Originally it was targeted for July. HealthCa.mp/la will have a different focus. We are looking to build a stronger connection with diet and exercise as a route to vitality and well being. It should be a fascinating event. Watch out for details.
HealthCa.mp/az is taking shape. It also happens in November on the 5th. A team at Arizona State University in Phoenix are busy putting the event together.
The next HealthCamp is HealthCampFlorida, taking place in Tampa, FL on Saturday July 30th. We may also have a HealthCamp happening the same day in Portland, Oregon as an adjunct to O’Reilly Media’s OSCON Conference. Watch out for developments at HealthCa.mp/or.
HealthCampSFBay is on the Schedule for Friday September 23rd. Sponsor tickets and Friend of HealthCamp tickets are already available. If you plan to be in San Francisco for Health Innovation Week and the Health 2.0 Conference then grab your ticket for HealthCampSFBay today. Once again the event is hosted at the Kaiser Permanente Sidney R Garfield Innovation Center in San Leandro, CA.
There is also a possibility of a HealthCamp happening in the UK this year. Details are still in the works. Watch out for news on that front!
HealthCamp Foundation happily participated in Regina Holliday’s The Walking Gallery on Tuesday, June 7, 2011. This is an amazing project where each coat is “painted with the story of a patient or an element of health advocacy by me (Regina Holliday) or another artist.”
Mark’s coat is Half Past Midnight
and includes part of the HealthCamp logo – the fireball & heart. There is also the “blue button”, “green button”, and “white button”, part of the Rainbow Button Initiative.
My coat, “Nurse Power”, also includes the HealthCamp fireball & heart but shows two nurses getting ready to kick some butt and that “butt” is the green creature in the corner – the AIDS virus! I Love everything that my jacket depicts.
This is just the start of the Walking Gallery but there will be more starting with The Walker’s Oath
Thanks to Ted Eytan for providing a copy of the Proclamation.
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.
