2008 was a really successful year for me. Of course, the most important thing is I launched Webicina.com, a service that aims to serve as a bridge between medical professionals and e-patients.
I launched a university credit course on medicine 2.0 and gave slideshows at several conferences:
- the Medicine Meets Virtual Reality Conference (Long Beach, CA; January, 2008)
- the University of Yale, School of Medicine (February, 2008)
- the clinics of Greenwich (February, 2008)
- Web 2.0 Symposium, Budapest, Hungary (March, 2008)
- the centre of World Health Organization (July, 2008)
- the 20th International Conference of the Society for Medical Innovation and Technology in Vienna, Austria (August, 2008)
- the Medicine 2.0 Congress in Toronto, Canada (September, 2008)
