Renewing our Advisory Board

By Lee Aase, Director, Mayo Clinic Social Media Network @LeeAase

advisory board badgeWhen Mayo Clinic launched our Center for Social Media in 2010, one of our first acts was to create an External Advisory Board for the Center and for the Social Media Health Network to bring in thought leaders from other institutions and industries, as well as patient representatives, to help us develop our programs. We crowd-sourced the last 17 members so we could identify interested volunteers we hadn't yet had the opportunity to meet. Those members came on board in early 2011.

We had planned for the Advisory Board members to have initial one-year terms and that we would revise membership at the beginning of 2012, but because of all we had going on in our building-the-plan-while-flying-it mode, we...well... procrastinated.

Now we have formalized the job descriptions and expectations for Advisory Board, and we're pleased to announce our new and returning members. See all of their bios.

New members include:

  • Jeffrey Benabio, M.D.
  • Bunny Ellerin
  • Susanna French
  • Melissa Hogan
  • Ahava Leibtag
  • Cynthia Floyd Manley
  • Jody Schoger
  • Bryan Vartabedian, M.D.

Continuing their service will be:

  • Patricia Anderson
  • David Ballard, Ph.D.
  • Phil Baumann
  • Ed Bennett
  • Andre Blackman
  • Chris Boyer
  • Nick Dawson
  • Lucien Engelen
  • Meredith Gould, Ph.D.
  • David Harlow, J.D.
  • Shel Holtz
  • Matt Katz
  • Dana Lewis
  • Howard Luks, M.D.
  • Bertalan Mesko, M.D.
  • Egbe Osifo Dawodu, MRCP MSc MBA
  • Christian Sinclair, M.D.
  • Reed Smith
  • Hugh Stephens
  • Wendy Sue Swanson, M.D.
  • Bob West, Ph.D.
  • Mary Pat Whaley
  • Kelly Young

We also want to thank those who were part of the original Advisory Board and have concluded their terms. We appreciate their help in launching the Center for Social Media and helping it to develop.

  • Christopher Burgess
  • ePatient Dave DeBronkart
  • John Oliver Delancey
  • Mark Ryan, M.D.
  • Tom Stitt
  • Tom Vanderwell
  • Joni Watson

We are developing plans for some great projects and initiatives in 2013, and look forward to our Advisory Board's help and guidance. Please join us in welcoming them!
