Speranza Avram from the UC Berkeley School of Public Health Center for Health Leadership writes to say that they’re hosting a two-day conference on April 15-16 called 21st Century Tools for Health Leaders: Using New Media and Health Communication Technologies. New media tools including social media, blogs, digital storytelling, video, virtual communities, Twitter, mobile phones and more, are being effectively used to facilitate the management of health organizations, support health education and disease management, inform health research and promote health advocacy. We invite health leaders, practitioners, educators and students to join us. Early bird registration ends March 12! Click here for more information about the conference and to register on-line.

Social media can be a very useful tool for doctors. Blogging and the use of Twitter can demystify doctors and increase patient retention.
The key is to use it regularly and drop the business-like demeanor and show who you really are.
This looks like a great event. Thanks for the head’s up Matthew!
