HCSM Review #32: Patient Empowerment Edition

The HCSM Review is a peer-reviewed blog carnival for everyone interested in health care social media, and I’m glad to be moderating the 32nd edition. This time we’re focusing on the ways technology is improving the lives of patients, and how patients are taking advantage of social tools to improve their own lives.

Leading off, we have an essay contest through the Mayo Clinic Center for Social Media for patients and caregivers to win scholarships to attend Social Media Week at Mayo Clinic. We published the first batch of the essays and opened the voting on Monday. So as not to play favorites, here’s the link to the page where all of the essays are featured. Check them out and cast your votes.
