On the Wednesday, October 16th 2013 at 10AM Pacific/1PM Eastern my special guest is Dr. Pat Salber. We turn the tables on Pat today and rather than put her in the moderator's seat, she the subject of today's discussion.

Pat's entry into social media and the broader digital domain was launched via the blog 'the doctor weighs in' (TDWI). A clincally vs. health policy focused place to discuss initially weight management issues, trends and development it quickly grew in both visibility and reach via a broader lens on medicine and the healthcare world at large albeit principally through the eyes of physicians.

Pat took somewhat of a sabbatical from her curation and writing duties at TDWI circa the 2011 timeframe to focus on the soon to emerge theater of crowd funding startups in the healthcare space via the platform HealtTech Hatch.

Today we get to learn more about this woman, her interests, vision and passion for emerging digitally enabled technologies and the people who write the code, invent the business model and chart the pathways to market  and their collective ability to make a difference for our ailing healthcare ecosystem.
