I just learned today that my proposal for South By Southwest has been accepted. This is a Big Deal in the world of public speaking, or so I’m told – I’ve never been there. (I’m such a newbie at this big-event stuff…)
The title of my proposal: “Let Patients Help: Why Healthcare Must Wake Up.”
Here’s my original post, with the full description of what I proposed.
Thank you to all who voted for it. Public votes are only part of the process, but if there had been no support, I’m sure it would have flopped.
Next step will be to figure out how to get there… it’s a lot o’ time and a lot o’ money, but you gotta do what you gotta do. And if at all possible, you don’t pass up SxSW. Last year I didn’t even apply, because my circumstances made it not even close to possible. This year it’s within reach.
Congratulations! That is such exciting news on many fronts.

Congrats! That is huge. You’ll be a hit and talking to people who need to hear your message.

Congrats!!! SxSW-goers are in for a real treat! I can’t think of any one who deserves this more than you . Especially after hearing you live at mayo social media summit last week! Congrats again! – Nina Walsh
Congratulations Dave! I myself am trying to get to the SxSW conference. I know you will wow them there. – Sincerely, a new admirer from the Mayo/Ragan summit.
