Denis Costello, Webmaster, Eurordis
Eurordis, an organization driving legislative support at the European level for rare disease associations, is now launching an online community with interactive tools for patients. Denis Costello from Ireland has been leading the project for 2 years as webmaster for Eurordis.
At Health 2.0 Europe in April 2010, Denis, an Irishman and Eurodis’ webmaster, showed rarediseasecommunities.org developed in conjunction with NORD (the American sister organization). It wowed the crowd and was a joint winner of Launch! So now he’s brought it to the American conference.
Dr. Alan Greene is a pediatrician who founded the Society for Participatory Medicine that is based on the power of changing health when people connecting. Greene moderates this panel of six demos from companies with exciting tools that utilize crowdsourcing and social media, including: WebCommunications, EURORDIS, CureTogether, Alliance Health, iMobileWellness, Autism360, and Inspire.
