Take Part in the LIVESTRONG Global Cancer Summit LIVE!

(Re-Posting the LIVESTRONG Blog article by Brooke McMillan on how to take part LIVE in the Global Cancer Summit, Click here to see the article on their site.)

The LIVESTRONG Global Cancer Summit will be one of the defining moments in our foundation’s history. Delegates representing over 60 countries will commit to make cancer a priority in their home countries. For the 500 attendees this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and for our staff, the culmination of several years very hard work. We are very excited.

For survivors all over the world, their family, friends, supporters of the foundation and interested public, we have decided to make this experience as interactive as possible. There will be opportunities each day to learn about what is going on at the summit, opportunity to view live streaming video, get daily recaps, ask you questions of the participants, hear stories from attendees and more.

Below are ways that you can take part in the Summit online:

UStream: We have created a channel for the LIVESTRONG Summit on UStream is a way to broadcast live and to archive past live events. Please go to every day at 11am CST (5-6pm Dublin time) to view recaps from the days events brought to you by staffers Chris Brewer and Brooke McMillan.

Twitter, hashtags and polls: Follow @LIVESTRONG, @LIVESTRONGCEO (Doug Ulman), @LIVESTRONGCB (Chris Brewer) and @LanceArmstrong for behind the scenes tweets from the event. There are also several staff and attendees that will be tweeting. We will all be “tagging” our tweets #LIVESTRONG. Go to our blog to follow tweets from the Summit. Each day we will be asking for your thoughts on various topics, so look our for twtpolls. We want your input!

Facebook Updates: If Facebook is your cup of tea, make sure to become a fan of LIVESTRONG. We will be constantly updating our status throughout the event.
YouTube postings:When we are not live streaming, we will be videoing parts of the summit, giving you walk through “tours” of the historic buildings and more. Check in daily

Flickr photos: Daily uploads of photos from the event will be added to LIVESTRONG’s Flickr photostream. The LIVESTRONG Blog will serve as a hub for all communications around the Summit.
