I am a fan of WEGO Health, a community dedicated to empowering health activists to help others. I love their mission. They also helped me get to BlogWorld 2010, which was an incredible experience for me.
Their latest idea is “WEGO Health TV” – a conversational web video series led by Health Activists (if you’re reading this, you are a Health Activist). The site has just launched into it’s beta/testing phases, so it’s password protected for now (*cough* username: hello, password: welcome *cough*).
You can take a look at the video (and many others) at WegoHealth.tv – Diabetes Channel (link no longer active…)
Kerri recorded the first clip, then Ronnie and I each responded to it – as if she was in the room talking to us. She then responded to our responses, and so on. A total of six little video clips which were then edited together into the final product. I think it turned out great.
WEGO has asked me to help get people involved in this neat new project. It’s free (for us) and gives us a great, highly polished, platform to spread diabetes awareness and advocacy. disclosure: I am being paid a small fee to help with this project.
I would love for the diabetes community to have strong representation on this fun new platform. Would you like to be involved?
You only need three things:
- A great topic (I can help with that)
- Two health activist friends (I can help with that too)
- Any digital video camera
What do you say? Want to get involved?
Also, thank you all for the birthday wishes – you sure know how to make a guy feel good!
