"Information Overload & Health Decisions" -- Ogilvy CommonHealth Worldwide's 
Gattuso and Nosta to Present at SXSW Interactive
Conference 
PARSIPPANY, NJ -- (Marketwire) -- 03/05/13 --  Joseph Gattuso and
John Nosta from Ogilvy CommonHealth Worldwide (ogilvychww.com), the
health-behavior experts of Ogilvy & Mather, have been selected to
deliver a presentation on "Information Overload & Health Decisions"
at the South By Southwest (SXSW) Interactive Convention (sxsw.com),
in Austin, Texas on Sunday, March 10th at 11:00AM. 
Joseph Gattuso is Chief Strategic Officer at Ogilvy CommonHealth
Worldwide and John Nosta is EVP, Senior Strategist at Ogilvy
CommonHealth Specialty Marketing, Forbes.com health and technology
blogger, and #1 Kred Health Influencer. Ogilvy CommonHealth Worldwide
is a WPP company (NASDAQ: WPPGY) (wpp.com). The organization houses
and maintains individual Ogilvy CommonHealth and Ogilvy Healthworld
brand identities as part of the Ogilvy & Mather (ogilvy.com) network. 
"Information Overload & Health Decisions" will address how illness is
complicated and the tsunami of digital information currently
available to most patients and caregivers doesn't always simplify
decision making -- and in fact, can often make it worse. Adding to
the complexity, the new role of patients as healthcare decision
makers can leave these vulnerable stakeholders with a new burden to
shoulder. Mr. Gattuso and Mr. Nosta will facilitate a discussion
among experts to suggest new ways to successfully negotiate the
"digital data dump" and associated patient alienation. To learn more

Ogilvy CommonHealth Worldwide will be presenting an additional
discussion -- "Digital Primitives: The Anthropology of Social" at the
Interactive Convention on Saturday, March 9th at 11:00AM. For more on
