#hcsmca chats about communicating the experience of illness in the digital age

August 4, 2014

MedX panelAt Stanford Medicine X in September, @PamRessler @SusannahFox @MeredithGould and I (@colleen_young) will lead a discussion about the power and pitfalls of people sharing their health experiences online: Communicating the experience of illness in the digital age.

Flipping the panel at #MedX

We are “flipping” the panel by sharing resources and participating in online discussions throughout the summer, hoping to include as many people as possible in the process. See Susannah’s Storify, tracking the conversations, relevant articles and our blog posts. Pam kicked it off on her blog, followed by Susannah’s post and then my post on self-disclosure in online communities. Meredith will be publishing hers this week.

Many of you have commented on the blogs or tweeted us using the hashtag #MedXsm and we hope you’ll continue to do so.

August 6 #hcsmca chat

On Wednesday, August 6 at 1 pm Eastern Time (find your time zone), we will take the conversation to the #hcsmca community, asking these questions:

  • How do you decide whether to disclose your health status via social media?
  • What factors prevent you from disclosing your health status via social media?
  • How has social media changed your perception/definition of privacy?
