In addition to keynote speakers, a patient panel sharing what patients want to know will be part of the program. You can ask them anything! Also, come prepared to debate the use of Facebook. We’ve heard about the data breaches in the news. Should Facebook’s disregard for user privacy compel responsible hospitals to abandon the platform? At the end of day one, two teams will debate this very question.

We’re capping attendance so you'll have plenty of opportunities to contribute, interact, and connect with your peers. You’ll leave energized with more knowledge and enthusiasm to tackle, analyze, and solve the biggest social media problems you face today.

You don't need to belong to the Mayo Clinic Social Media Network to attend. Members receive a 25% discount on conference registration. If you’re not a member, your registration includes a full-year Premium membership in the Network (a $295 value).
