Webinar | Why Twitter is Worth Physicians’ Time

By meredithgould

Physicians using Twitter? When Twitter was launched in 2006, not so many. Nearly a decade has passed and increasing numbers of doctors understand the value of Twitter.

Mark your calendar and plan to join us on Thursday, March 26 (1-2 p.m. ET) for a webinar featuring a panel of Twitterati. You'll hear from physicians with longtime as well as relatively new participation on Twitter share insights about how this social networking platform has helped them:

  • enhance visibility and credibility as a thought leader relative to public health issues (e.g., vaccination);
  • open up opportunities to engage with colleagues in specialty areas;
  • get access to new and ongoing research;
  • gain insight about patient concerns; and
  • build their medical practice.

As a webinar participant you'll have an opportunity to ask questions plus share your experience and insights about Twitter for physicians...and physicians for Twitter.

Registration for this webinar is $95, but FREE for members of the Social Media Health Network. Learn more about joining the Network.
