#FamMedRocks Podcast 6 Preview

Family Medicine Rocks podcast number 6 will feature Family Physician Dr. Chip Teel who is author of the book Alone and Invisible: Averting Disaster In Aging America. Dr. Teel is from Maine and there he has been an advocate for the best care for older Americans - to try to keep them as independent as possible with the use of technology. Check out his website called Full Circle America. Hope you can join us for the show which will be on Thursday, April 21, 2011 at 8pm Eastern Daylight Time on BlogTalkRadio. If you cannot join us live, that's ok you can always listen to the archived show anytime on the show's BTR site.

I'm also very excited to announce that following the show, at approximately, 9pm Eastern Time, the first #FamMedChat will begin. Someone from the #FMRevolution twitter sphere will be starting things off. I'll be there as soon as I can. I have to be honest with you in that I have no idea about how this is going to turn out. One thing I'm certain about is that we're going to be having a good time.

If you're looking for a primer on what you need to know, check out this slideshare show to find out some valuable information. I encourage my #FamMedChat colleagues to leave advice, tips, and tricks down in the comment section - especially for our FamMed friends who may have never participated in a twitter chat before. A lot of things are coming to my mind, but I encourage my friends to help me out and leave some advice for the newbies below. Hope to see you Thursday for the podcast and for the chat!
