The FTC isn’t in a position to evaluate your latest cholesterol results, and no, we can’t tell you if that looks infected. But we’d still like to hear your health questions – your questions about consumer generated and controlled health data, that is. That’s the topic of an FTC seminar from 10:00 ET to noon on Wednesday, May 7, 2014, and you’re invited to participate.
The seminar – part of the FTC’s spring privacy series – will examine how consumers are taking a more active role in managing and generating their own health data through websites, devices, apps, etc. What are the potential benefits and privacy implications of these new technologies?
If you can’t make it to 601 New Jersey Avenue, N.W., in Washington, D.C., to be there in person, watch the webcast live from a link posted that morning on the event page. There are three other ways to get involved:
Twitter: We’ll tweet highlights from the @FTC Twitter account and use the hashtag #FTCpriv.
Facebook: Post questions to the FTC’s Facebook page in the seminar status thread.
Email: Send questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ll do our best to get to as many of your questions as possible.
