Medinfo2010 Starts Today

Medinfo2010 starts properly today – delegates will shortly be gathering for the official opening ceremony, to be addressed by the South African Minister of Health, Dr A Motsoaledi, and with the opening keynote from Dr Najeeb Al-Shorbaji, from WHO.

Tutorials and workshops have been held yesterday and today, as well as a series of overlapping meetings, including the IMIA Board and General Assembly, HELINA and IMIA-LAC GAs, and many other activities. Reports on many of these will follow.

For those unable to be there in person, there will be a raft of opportunities for interaction through social media; some of these are linked/grouped at while many other individuals will be blogging, tweeting and otherwise talking about the event. Medinfo2010 also has a Facebook event page – and a LinkedIn group – and is on Twitter @medinfo2010
