Trends to Watch in 2013

By Miguel Gomez

January 1, 2013

As we anticipate the next big thing in the use of new media and emerging technologies to support HIV/AIDS and other health care efforts, we’ve asked experts and thought leaders across the Federal and private sectors to predict the trends to watch in 2013. Here’s what we heard them say.

Thanks to Prudence Goforth, Web Communications and New Media Director at Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Venton Jones, Communications and Education Manager at the National Black Gay Men's Advocacy Coalition, Oriol Gutierrez, Editor-in-Chief, POZ, Miguel Gomez, Director, and others who shared their thoughts to help us to develop this post.

From everyone at, we wish you a very happy New Year! Please tell us your ideas for things to watch for in 2013!

Miguel Gomez is the director of and senior communications advisor in the Office of HIV/AIDS and Infectious Disease Policy at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
