Join us for the #MayoSHSMD Virtual Conference

We're excited to announce that registration is opening today for a virtual conference we're producing with the Society for Health Care Strategy & Market Development (SHSMD): Advanced Health Care Social Media & Digital Marketing, a.k.a. #MayoSHSMD, June 2-3, 2020.

Lisa Hinkle, the SHSMD Director of Education, approached us last October with the idea of working together on a virtual conference. She wanted to offer her members an advanced-level conference, and thought we could help create a strong program. We've been hosting health care social media conferences at Mayo Clinic for more than 10 years, and have collaborated on three international social media summits, two in Australia and one last December in Dubai.

Virtual Means Lower Registration FREE and No Travel Costs

For our part, we welcomed the opportunity to work with this professional membership group of the American Hospital Association. We were confident we could put together a great program with SHSMD, and after a decade of managing in-person event logistics thought this would be a nice change of pace.

We obviously had no idea that COVID-19 would lead to the cancellation of in-person conferences all over the world.

So while we can't claim any special foreknowledge, this decision to join together in a virtual conference has turned out better than we could have imagined.

UPDATE (4/16/20): It's now FREE!

During this time of uncertainty with the COVID-19 pandemic response, SHSMD and Mayo Clinic want to ensure that you have access even though your budget is likely constrained.

That's why we decided to eliminate the registration fee and make this virtual conference FREE!

Check Out the Virtual Conference Program

We're also reducing the cost for anyone who wants to upgrade to premium membership in the Mayo Clinic Social Media Network.

Join MCSMN or upgrade now through June 2, and you'll save $100 off the regular rate of $295.

You'll also get access to our webinars (regularly $59 each), including the archive, as well as the Social for Healthcare Certificate online training (regularly $250).

Check out the virtual conference program and join us online June 2-3!

Hi everyone,
Yesterday I replied Lee's Conference Invitation Email with CC to Dan Hinmon. I received two failure mails:

Remote Server returned '554 5.4.4 < #5.4.4 X-Postfix; Host or domain name not found.

Thanks for contacting me and the Mayo Clinic Social Media Network.
To reserve resources to meet critical needs, Mayo Clinic has asked me to take a break from my part-time work managing the community for a while. In the meantime, please email SocialMediaCenter@Mayo.edu for any community-related questions. Or call Lee Aase at 507-266-2442 if this is urgent.
I’m healthy and well. I hope you stay the same!
Dan

My question: WHO IS RESPONSIBLE for this venue when Dan is not here to register or to get the promo code?
Thank you for your reply.
Stay healthy!

Thanks for your note, Olga. As Dan's out-of-office message indicates, we're asking that messages that formerly went to him would go to our common email inbox, socialmediacenter@mayo.edu, because others on the team are going to be picking up his responsibilities. I will follow up with a note to you directly.
