Registration open for Media Medica Conference!
Institution/Sponsor: Johns Hopkins University

When: October 27th & 28th
Where: Johns Hopkins Medical & University Campuses, Baltimore, MD
Why: Medicine never takes place in a vacuum – the spaces between patient, doctor, and scientist have always been mediated by a set of paper, analog, and digital technologies. Join an international group of scholars in humanities and social sciences, physicians and medical educators to explore the changing role of new media in medicine.
