Here's what the local attendees are coming for:

Stanford Medical InfoFair '95
Admission is Free!
Learn About the Internet and World Wide Web

You are cordially invited to the third annual Stanford Medical InfoFair on
Saturday, April 1, from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM, at Fairchild Auditorium,
Stanford University. Participants will learn about the growing importance
of the information superhighway to the medical and allied health
professions. Special attention will be focused on the much-publicized World
Wide Web. Today, hundreds of medical information resources around the
world are available on the World Wide Web, including information from
federal agencies (e.g., NIH, NLM, AHCPR, CDC, and FDA), disease-specific
protocol and guideline information, literature and library services,
telemedicine resources, continuing medical education resources, patient
information, and more. There are, of course, many other non-medical sites
accessible internationally at the click of a button such as sources for
governmental information, business information, weather, newspapers and
news services, entertainment and sports, and local restaurants.

In a series of talks and demonstrations, experts from Stanford University
Medical Center will teach participants how to explore the World Wide Web
from their home or office personal computer. Numerous workstations will be
available for attendees to get hands-on experience with the Web, and the
InfoFair will introduce the tools by which attendees can publish their own
information on the Web. Internet video conferencing will be demonstrated
and attendees will be able to see and chat with students at Stanford
Overseas studies centers in Japan and England, as well as with educators at
medical centers across the US.

The Stanford Medical InfoFair is sponsored by the Center for Advanced
Medical Informatics at Stanford (CAMIS) and allied groups, including the
Section on Medical Informatics, the Information Systems Group, Lane Medical
Library, Stanford University Medical Media and Information Technologies
(SUMMIT), SUMC Networking, and the Information Management and
Technology Group from Stanford Health Services.
