Dear Wikipedians,

Earlier this week, a large conference for the students of health
professions was held in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.  The organizers were
kind enough to invite me to speak about Wikipedia and Medicine and
about the medical wikithons we have been organizing in Saudi Arabia.
The turnout was really good (3,500 students attended the conference!)
and I spoke about the following points:

1. Wikipedia *is* a reliable source for health information.
2. Wikipedia *is* the right place to distribute health-related
   information.
3. WikiProject Medicine is active and can use your help!

The presentation I used was in Arabic, but it includes many quotes and
citations in English.  The presentation is best viewed using
Chrome/Chromium (and doesn't work on mobile browsers):

I just thought that this might be of interest to people who would like
to present the case for Wikipedia and medicine.

Best,
