Update on the Clinton Blogging Event

I wanted to do this update yesterday but am in the middle of a prolonged (epic) technology fail so things have been moving a bit slowly. Anyway, as you can see from the picture above (I am the second to last person on the right; you can just see my head) there was a good group of us at the Clinton blogger event. The conversation included many topics, from health care and clean energy to digital literacy and human rights. While I focused on health care and the specific threads most relevant to the chronic disease population, there are many other compelling perspectives on the issues.

For some other summaries and analysis of the event, check out some of the posts on Think Progress, Lawyers, Guns and Money, Feministing, and The Daily Kos.

It was a great mix of bloggers and backgrounds, and I feel fortunate to have met such dynamic writers and thinkers in person. (And of course, I’m still sort of pinching myself that I sat next to President Clinton. Couldn’t help making the Georgetown connection with him—Hoya Saxa!)

A preview of an upcoming event-related post: Applying thoughts on race and respect to the health care world…
