From July 2-6th I was in Brussels, Belgium attending the 13th EAHIL Conference “Health Information without Frontiers” http://sites-final.uclouvain.be/EAHIL2012/conference/
I was able to spread the word about HAPI, and received good feedback about the site. I also found many people from around Europe are interested in collaborating on the project!
Upon my return from Europe I found out that my application for the HLA/HCN Innovation Award was the runner up application. Congratulations to Sarah Hayman for being this years winner! http://www.alia.org.au/groups/healthnat/HLA-news-June12-unsecure.pdf (page 3).
Keep checking back each month! Besides the addition of health awareness events from New Zealand and the Philippines that were added recently (thanks to Christine Jacobs!), there will be new countries represented soon!
Congratulations to my collaborators in Spain, they have received an award for their April Netvibes page on Safety and Occupational Health! http://www.netvibes.com/diadseguridadt#Portada
In other news, on Friday, May 4th, I will be presenting at the Intelligent Information Symposium in Sydney http://intelligentinfo.com.au/2012_programme.cfm, “How HAPIness Happened!” the story about how this project has developed from an idea to a reality and the international collaboration that has been such an integral part of it. The presentation is now viewable on Slideshare! http://www.slideshare.net/bsheim/how-hapiness-happened
Included in the presentation will be a video from another collaborator, Guus Van Den Brekel about our first international project, MeLoW (Medical Librarians of the World) a Google + project. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RUHBdNZ3xac.
