In the past year or so, it has become an indisputable fact among the healthcare community that social media has become an important vehicle for facilitating change within the industry. From medical professionals to patients, caregivers to those seeking a healthier lifestyle, social media has opened up the floodgates for conversation among these communities.
The Business Development Institute recognizes the importance of evaluating the industrys social media strategies, addressing the FDAs concerns, and speaking with thought leaders on predicting the future of social media in the healthcare arena. Thats why theyre hosting the 2nd Annual Social Communications & Healthcare: Case Studies and Roundtables to explore and define social media best practices for healthcare professionals.
The case study presentations and moderated roundtables will take place at The Graduate Center of The City University of New York in midtown Manhattan, New York City on May 11, 2010 from 8:30 AM until 1:00 PM. Over 350 participants are expected to attend. A networking breakfast, as well as networking breaks between sessions, will be offered.
This years agenda is jam-packed with superstar speakers, such as Johnson & Johnsons Marc Monseau, Pfizers Ray Kerins, and the CDCs Ann Aiken. Also, Dose of Digitals Jonathan Richman will be holding his Dosie Awards ceremony (Pixels & Pills is up for Best Industry Observer Blog!)
