Looking Ahead to 2022

Happy New Year to the HCLDR Community! Hopefully you were all able to take a few days to rest and recuperate from the year we just finished.

We managed to have a couple of small family gather over the holidays before we went back into lockdown due to the Omicron variant. It was subdued, but nice.

Over the past few years on HCLDR it has become somewhat of a tradition to use the first tweetchat in a calendar year to talk about resolutions and things we are personally committing to in the upcoming year. In the past two years, however, there has been a growing chorus of people to are rebelling against the notion of New Years Resolutions.

They are certainly hard to keep, but more importantly, evaluating goals and setting personal objectives should happen throughout the year, not just when the calendar changes.

So this year, rather than talk about resolutions, I thought it would be more fun to talk about predictions for 2022. What will be the top stories we will be talking about this year in healthcare? What will be the good news that will emerge this year? What is going to make you happy in 2022?

I’m looking forward to kicking off 2022 with the HCLDR Community and I can’t wait to see some of the exciting things you are expecting this year.

Join the HCLDR Community on Tuesday January 11th at 8:30pm ET (for your local time click here) for the first tweetchat of 2022. We will be discussing:

  • T1 What will be the top healthcare news stories in 2022?
  • T2 What “good news” will emerge in 2022 (doesn’t have to be healthcare related)?
  • T3 What is going to make you happy this year?
  • T4 What are the topics that you would like to see covered this year on HCLDR tweetchats?

Really looking forward to another year with this fantastic community. Hopefully some of us will have the chance to see each other in-person!
