CaringBridge tries to span out


Years before the birth of Facebook or the existence of the word "blog," there was CaringBridge… "These sites are serving a real need," said Lee Aase, director of Mayo Clinic's year-old Center for Social Media, which was launched to study technology and health care. "A generation ago when people would come to Mayo, they'd go back to the hotel and spend hours calling people. More recently they'd have their cell phones and be getting calls. It does place a burden on families."
