Health Roundup at SXSW 2011

We’ve put together the most comprehensive list for health related topics at SXSW for 2011.  If you are headed to Austin for this year’s SXSW and interested in health, then this is your quick reference guide.  Looks like most of the health related happenings will be on Sunday, March 13th, but you’ll need a strategy since many are at overlapping times.

Will Cake Health be there?  We aren’t sure yet.  We are getting ready for our private alpha launch during that time, so we may be heads down, but if you see our friends at HealthTap or Todd Park from HHS, do say hello for us.
