WEGO Health TV – Diabetes

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*).

Kerri, Ronnie, and I were asked to create the first diabetes related video, and it was a really fun project.

You can take a look at the video (and many others) at WegoHealth.tv – Diabetes Channel (link no longer active…)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:

  1. A great topic (I can help with that)
  2. Two health activist friends (I can help with that too)
  3. 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!

    • Thanks H! You should make one too! All we need are three people total and a discussion topic! Hmmm… I bet we could find three of us on the Pancremaniacs! We would need to get Gary to give us his “you could DIE” line, right? NOT SERIOUSLY Gary! 🙂

  1. You guys were awesome!!! Question: does it have to be a digital camera, or can one use a webcam? I was just talking to another diabetes blogger who brought that up.

    Anyway, the idea is amazing because even though all of us are in different places, we can still converse and collaborate. I love it.

    • Great question Sysy!

      You can use basically anything that can record a decent quality video. Most webcams should work fine. Let me know if you want to give it a shot and we’ll figure out the details!

      The idea is really something special, isn’t it? It takes online discussions to a whole new level, and I love the polish and shine the WEGO editing crew puts on it. Makes it look so incredible! With how strong the diabetes online community is, we should represent hardcore in this arena too! Just need people who are interested in making some magic happen. 🙂

  2. Scott, the video is amazing – and it brings all of us at WEGO Health a big smile when you say you love our mission. Here’s hoping your *cough* giveaway of our secret password *cough* inspires other Health Activists. THANKS for all you do.
