Regular readers of the blog will know that we’re big fans of BDI’s “Case Studies and Roundtables” events. They’re small, intimate gatherings where people can really tlak about some of the issues and trends facing our industry. While a major client obligation prevent us from bringing you our usual video coverage of their latest event, we wanted to make sure that all P & P readers knew about a great opportunity to learn how social communications are changing the face of healthcare. Best of all, even though we won’t be on site, the good folks at BDI are still offering a discount code for any P & P readers interested in attending. We knew there was a reason why we liked these guys! Seriously, BDI puts on some of the best healthcare related programming in the industry and we hope you’ll all get a chance to check out their latest offering.
Here’s a fuller description of the vent from our friend and colleague, Maria Feola-Magro:
