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You can take a look at the video (and many others) at WegoHealth.tv – Diabetes Channel (link no longer active…)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