Global hcsm and Twitter chats in South Africa
Past Twitter chat discussing the future of global health
The Doctors 2.0 & You Congress ran a Twitter chat on the hashtag #Doctors20 titled “The Impact of Global Health Twitter chats” on Nov 6, 2014 with the moderator, Vanessa Carter from South Africa, an Antibiotic Resistance (MRSA) and Facial Difference e-Patient.
Vanessa Carter wrote: “I have been participating in and following health Tweetchats taking place globally for a few years, since 2012. Sometimes I even woke up at 3.00 am to attend the well-known #hcldr because of timezones. I want to be able to bring that to South Africa and encourage participation in terms of putting our concerns on the table”.
