After the success of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Twitter aggregation, with over 250 readers over the course of the weekend, I thought it would be fun to repeat the experiment for the European Hematology Association (EHA) meeting in Barcelona this weekend. The tweet volume is likely to be significantly less tough, with fewer people tweeting from the event.
Most of the topics I'm interested in will be on leukemias, lymphomas and myeloma, so if you are interested in these cancers, you can follow the feed below. I've aggregated two hashtags, #EHA10 and #EHA2010.
Additionally, Dr Anas Younes from MD Anderson Cancer Center will also be attending and following his tweet stream may also be instructive, especially if you are interested in his specialty, lymphomas.
Do feel free to join in remotely in the back channel and add links, comments or ask questions if you feel so inclined. The more the merrier!
I'm particularly looking forward to the Patient Advocacy symposium chaired by Jan Geissler, an awesome guy who just happens to have CML. While the science and clinical data are important, it's also critical to hear and learn from the advocacy viewpoint.
On the healthcare (#hcsmeu) front, I'm also hoping to meet fellow Twitter buddies, Miguel and Angel for an impromptu tweetup of #hcsmeuES. If you're on Twitter and interested in healthcare, check them all out, all three are great gentlemen I would highly recommend!
