February and March Health Tech Reads #HTReads

In the next few months we will be reading some great books for Health Tech at Healthtechreads. Our Team is preparing for #HIMSS18 by planning meetings - if you know great authors we should meet please let us know. We have learned a lot about Health Tech from thought leaders and books in 2017 and look forward to improving the dialogue about Healthcare and Technology and increase literacy. Every Tuesday night at 9:30 PM EST we log on to twitter and discuss something we've read. People are welcome to join in the conversation as a preview to books or to share what they've learned. We are also looking for (book) giveaway sponsors and if you want to review or recommend a great book you've read please let us know.

For the Most updated advice- search the #HTReads hashtag on Twitter.
