New public health blog

A new blog, The e-Public Health Blog, has been developed by Francisco Jose Grajales III (Cisco), who is a Graduate Student Researcher at the Office of eHealth Strategy, Faculty of Medicine, University of British Columbia, Canada.

The motivation for the blog is based in Cisco’s fascination with the convergence of ehealth, mhealth, public health, and strategy. It will focus on Medicine and Web 2.0 applications for disease management and patient empowerment; lessons learned in his journey from allied health care professional to primary care provider; and Exercise Physiology. The blog will be bilingual, ie, will be primarily published in English; however you may request the translation of any article to Spanish and may also contact Cisco in French.

Recent posts link to materials on public health informatics in Africa, eHealth governance, challenges in sustainability of eHealth in Africa, and other topics covered at the recent eHealth Ghana meeting.

Cisco is a member of the IMIA Web 2.0 Taskforce, and is currently on an internship with WHO in Geneva. He can be contacted via the blog and is also regularly on Twitter (@CiscoGIII).
