I have registered to attend the Blog World Expo. At this time I am only registered for the Med Bloggers Panel on Thursday, but am looking forward to meeting all of you. I have word from Dr Sid Schwab that he too is registered. If his Visa comes through, then Bongi will be attending. Those two alone should encourage the rest of you to attend.
Not enough. Then check out the list of panelists from Dr Rob’s post, Blogworld Expo invaded by Medical Bloggers!!!
