FasterCures will be featured in TechSoup Global's NonProfit Commons Health Expo, a mixed reality event that marks the official launch of the Health Commons in Second Life. Health Commons seeks to bring together real-world health-related nonprofits, academics, educators, thought-leaders, foundations, and volunteer-supporters to showcase recent developments in healthcare.
Earlier this year, FasterCures joined Second Life, the Internet's largest, user-created 3D community and established its virtual home in NonProfit Commons which already houses more than 65 health and social-benefit organizations. Establishing a presence in Second Life allows FasterCures to reach a broad range of audiences and involve them in the quest for new treatments to deadly and debilitating diseases. This effort builds on an already engaged community of informed and connected health consumers and leverages the social networking's strengths to improve the biomedical research environment.
