In the Mayo Clinic Center for Social Media, our goal is not to do all of the social media at Mayo Clinic, but to provide guidance and assistance so others can use these tools effectively for health-related purposes. We particularly want to help our Mayo Clinic staff bring their ideas to fruition, so that's why we're excited today to help launch the Saving Lives with Gus series.
The series was inspired by David Farley, M.D., who co-directs the Simulation Medicine Fellowship program at Mayo Clinic in Rochester. Surgical Dr. Farley challenged a couple of his research fellows to come up with a project using the sim center that could save at least one life per year.
So Raaj Ruparel, M.D., and Yazan AlJamal, M.B.B.S., developed a pilot video, which has been refined and is launching today as the first in the Saving Lives with Gus series.
See the news release for further details.
We're excited to have been able to facilitate this project, which will involve the fellows releasing a new educational video each Friday. We hope you'll help spread the word about #SavingLivesWithGus. And if you have an idea for a topic they should cover, please suggest it with a tweet or in the comments below.
