Upcoming: Consumer Health Informatics Conference (Oct. 30, 2007)

For those interested in empowering consumers and patients, there’s an interesting upcoming conference: Consumer Health Informatics Conference. The goal of the conference is:

to focus on the technical, social, ethical and professional issues arising from consumer empowerment using information technology.

The conference is a one-day (Tuesday Oct. 30, 2007) event held at Ottawa’s National Arts Centre. The program seems very interesting and based on my knowledge of the speakers, should be a thought-provoking and challenge filled day.
