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.
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!

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