This past Thursday, Dr. Paul Abramson and Lauren DeDedecker attended the Quantified Self Conference in the Presidio in San Francisco. We hosted a morning breakout session titled “Quant-Friendly Doctors and Doctor-Friendly Quants” that drew a very passionate and diverse crowd. We began by describing what exactly it is we are doing in our medical practice with self-tracking and our unique Quant Coaching Program. The questions and debates sparked were interesting and at times emotionally charged. Little did we know that one astute woman in the audience was live tweeting the whole thing!
Whitney Boesel is a sociology PhD student who writes for Cyborgology, and studies mood tracking and the sociology of new technology. During our hour-long session, Whitney tweeted 29 times. She was able to boil down some of Dr. Abramson’s core values and aspects of our Quant Coaching Program to a series of 140 character messages.
