Re: Patient powered health

Hello Michael - welcome to another member of the Society for Participatory Medicine. I have much I want to say (in agreement with you) and I wonder if it's better here or in discussion on my essay itself. As you well know as a successful blogger, it's useful to grow the conversation where the context is richest. What do you think?

To directly address your point, one never knows which specimen will first draw a spotlight; in my own advocacy it's been essential to point out that examples are all over everywhere. That's why in my few minutes of TED talk I pointedly ended with talking of two other e-patients.

Per my email today, I hope we can meet up when I'm in London for the International Forum.
