SPM is launching a tweetchat series this Saturday, Sept. 14 at 3pm Eastern, 7pm GMT (use The World Clock [link:] to find your time zone). The chat will be led by Casey Quinlan, @MightyCasey; Ileana Balcu, @Yogileana; and Carla Berg, @Confluently.

We’ll be hosting an #s4pm tweetchat on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month, with our 2nd edition slated for Saturday, Sept. 28 from the floor of MedicineX at Stanford, where a number of our members will be in attendance.

Our first chat on 9/14 will focus on:

  1. What is participatory medicine?
  2. How has peer-to-peer healthcare impacted you?

We’re inviting anyone interested in healthcare to join us, and to talk about how creating collaboration between doctors and patients is where real healthcare transformation happens.

If you’re a member of another healthcare tweetchat community, tell your t-chat buddies to surf over to and plug in the hashtag #s4pm at 3pm Eastern this coming Saturday. We want to hear from all of you!

Can’t make it? Tell us what you think participatory medicine is and how has peer-to-peer healthcare impacted you! Just use the Comment form below!

Awesome job done by Casey Quinlan this weekend with the relaunch of #s4pm tweetchat. We had a great crowd!

Followed by a G+ hangout with Kathi Browne in which Casey talked about SPM and how peer to peer healthcare is valuable and necessary – excellent chat

I hope some of you will be able to make it to the chat in in two weeks life from MedX.
