ATTD LA – Influence of Social Media on Diabetes Treatment

September 7th is our national holiday to celebrate the independence of Brazil. At the same day started the ATTD LA, medical area congress to talk about Advanced Technologies & Treatments for Diabetes. It took place in Rio de Janeiro, Copacabana.

I was invited to talk about how social media could improve diabetes treatment. The main goal was to show that some communities can promote social learning (collective experience) and help on diabetes treatment (individually).

No dia 07 de setembro celebramos a independência do Brasil. Neste mesmo dia começou o evento ATTD-LA, congresso médico sobre Avanços tecnológicos e Tratamentos do Diabetes, no Rio de Janeiro – Copacabana.

Eu fui convidada para falar sobre como as mídias sociais podem contribuir para o tratamento do diabetes. O objetivo era mostrar que comunidades podem promover conhecimento  (experiência coletiva) e ajudar no tratamento do diabetes (individualmente).
