News!

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.

Zdravlje = HEALTH in Serbian

I’m pleased to say that I will be adding the health awareness events from Serbia!

Zdravlje = HEALTH

March is the National Month Against Cancer:  Nacionalni mesec borbe protiv raka.

Calendar of events (in Serbian, Hungarian and English): http://www.zjzs.org.rs/index.php from this page, click on Current Events or  Aktuelna dogadjanja for this year’s events.

 The rest of the Serbian events this year will be added to the global calendar that I publish here.

So far this year they observed World No Tobacco Day on January 31st, or as they say it in Serbian “Nacionalni dan borbe protiv duvanskog dima” the second video on this site is about that promotion.

I’d like to acknowledge and thank fellow Medical Librarian, Ana Ivkovic for finding these for me.

The challenge is on now, what other countries have health awareness events that can be added to this site? Please use the form at the top of the page to send me additional events. If the event is not in English, please include translations.

New icon and now HAPI is on facebook!

Thanks to Guus Van Den Brekel, there is now an icon for this site!  The icon will also be used for the mobile app that is now under development and is being used on the Facebook page.

To find the Facebook page, type Healthaware into the search bar.

Please have a look, tell your friends and family! Spread the awareness!

New domain!

Big news! This site now has it’s own domain!  www.healthaware.org

I’ve enjoyed putting together all the awareness events for others to use.  It’s been an interesting project.

There are a lot of health issues that need attention.

The next step must be a global approach. I will be adding health awareness events from more countries.

And in different languages!

If you have access to health awareness events in other countries (besides Australia, Canada, UK, US) please consider contributing to this site. Also if you speak another language and would like to contribute, please let me know.

HAPI – Health Awareness Project Information: 2012

This blog has been created to assist anyone who is interested in those special days/weeks/months of health awareness.  I have searched worldwide to include relevant information for Australia, Canada, UK, USA and Worldwide events.

Each month will consist of 2 publications, one for the monthly awareness and one for the days and weeks.  There may occasionally be an additional publication. Please feel free to follow, repost or forward to friends and colleagues.

A link to a calendar with all the events will be available when it is complete. [Note, after looking at the statistics of how often the calendar was viewed, and considering how long it was taking each month to update, it has been decided to remove the calendar. Sept. 2012 BH]

If you know of others, please comment and include a link to further information.

I hope you will find these helpful.

Coming soon: January
