[#OAW15SF in Video] Wikipedia, WikiProject Medicine, and All of Us

UCSF’s Amin Azzam wants YOU to get on Wikipedia and contribute to global health.

Not only do most of us make Wikipedia our first stop when exploring a new topic, turns out our medical professionals do, too. Dr. Amin Azzam liberates us from any feeling of Wiki-shame and points out the opportunity that this represents. “Wikipedia is the most multilingual part of the internet,” he explains and, thus, may be the perfect conduit for bringing high-quality medical information to every corner of the world. You can help make sure that’s the case by becoming a collaborator on WikiProject Medicine. The only thing missing is you!
