Development Marketplace Blog and HealthStore on PBS

Development Marketplace 2007 v2If you’re in Washington DC today and/or tomorrow, be sure to stop by the Development Marketplace event at the World Bank.? For those unable to make it to DC, or stuck in meetings both days (me), don’t fret – there’s a blog!?

The Development Marketplace blog, Hot Ideas/Cool Projects, launched a few days ago and features Tom Grubisich and a team of guest writers.? Early posts include stats on the number and type of projects vying for the $4 million prize pool and even a link to John’s thoughts after last year’s Marketplace.? Good stuff – check it out.Also for your calendar – well, probably your TiVo/DVR/VCR.? I received word this morning from Scott Hillstrom of HealthStore Foundation that PBS will be covering the innovative franchise pharmacy model this Friday.? (More coverage on HealthStore in our case study, published last year).?

Scott reports that PBS’ NOW program will air a segment on HealthStore, and that airtimes depend on your local PBS affiliate – either 8:00, 8:30, 9:00, or 9:30.? Definitely worth watching…especially if you’re me and you’ll be spending your Friday night at a Hampton Inn in Raleigh, North Carolina.

(Business meetings that day, but I’ll be hanging around to play in an ultimate frisbee tournament that weekend.? If you’re in the Raleigh area and want to meet up on Friday, drop me a line!)
