Let’s Give ‘em Something to Blab About


Modernizing Medicine’s co-founders CEO Daniel Cane and CMO Dr. Michael Sherling will be “blabbing” alongside other industry leaders on hot topics in the healthcare industry.

All About Blab
So what’s all this blabbering about? A Blab is live-video chat and can be described as a hybrid of a Google-hangout and Twitter chat with a little bit of a podcast tossed in there too. Mashable has a great article that further explains how it works. The Blab platform enables you to tune in to a group of 2-4 individuals who are having a live conversation. It is a very casual setting and makes you feel personally connected to all participants. As a viewer, you login via your Twitter account and can submit questions through the platform. Anyone can host a Blab or tune in to one (as long as you have a Twitter account). Recordings are also available post-blab too.
