Of potential interest to many of you, Nathan Cobb (Legacy Institute), Bernie Hogan (Oxford Internet Institute), and Tom Valente (University of Southern California) will
take part in a GE Healthcare Virtual Roundtable on October 18th, between 16:00-16:45 BST, asking; “Can online social networks help you get healthier?”, exploring the possible role of social networking in improving health behaviour.
We will discuss issues relating to the possible effect and evaluation of online social media health campaigns. The roundtable will be recorded on an open conference call, with participation available to all.
