We just received this in the email. It’s to publicize a project funded by AHRQ so is both legit and valuable, & worth knowing about if like us you believe that postmodern medicine is fundamentally digital and data-driven.


Broad, Brianna <brianna.broad@academyhealth.org>

To whom it may concern:

My name is Brianna Broad and I am the Program Coordinator for the Electronic Data Methods (EDM) Forum, a learning community of scientific experts, providers, patients, and business and policy leaders all working together to understand how personal health information can best be used to support and improve health.

I am reaching out to you today to see if you can help spread the word about an upcoming webinar about our new open-access peer review on-line journal, eGEMs (next week, April 3!) and also a Call for Abstracts for our June Symposium in Baltimore, MD (deadline: April 5).

We would greatly appreciate it if you could share the two messages below with your network.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to let me know. Thank you in advance for helping us spread the word about these great opportunities!

Best regards,

Brianna Broad

Program Coordinator, EDM Forum
