The internet connects us not only with information, but also with each other. That deceptively simple insight is key to our work in improving health outcomes. This session will provide data from both national surveys and clinical studies to raise questions and awareness about peer to peer health care and other megatrends at the intersection of health and technology. Online engagement is a path out of the maze of illness and despair that we find ourselves in these days. Social media can be a platform for hope.
