While I’m still skeptical that large numbers of Caribbean people are using the microblogging service, those who do should take advantage of the volume of knowledge available and join the the many online conversations going on about health.
For the third week now, PAHO’s eHealth (#esac; 7PM EST) team has been hosting weekly “What is Public eHealth?” tweet chats about eHealth, mHealth and various new media approaches to reducing health inequalities across Latin America and the Caribbean.
And coming up on Monday, January 30, at 2PM EST, the director of the U.S.’s Center’s for Disease Control and Prevention, Dr. Tom Frieden, MD, MPH, (@DrFriedenCDC) will host a twitter chat abut cervical cancer. This is timely and relevant because cervical cancer is the 3rd most common cause of cancer in women in the world. research is ongoing to assess the prevalence of cervical cancer in our region. All women are at risk for cervical cancer. And, it is preventable.
So, will you be chatting it up on Twitter?
