NYU School of Medicine's third annual WWW conference is now a month away. 
Three sessions will present timely information in the general areas of
"Staying in Touch with Medical Information", "Establishing and Maintaining
a Dialogue: Patient/Physician information services." and "Confidentiality,
Security and Privacy". 

We have a superb faculty and a mix of platform presentations and
small-group discussions.  A round-table discussion chaired by Dan Masys, MD, 
will give participants an chance to explore confidentiality, security and
privacy issues.

The web-site provides detailed information about the current state of the
