It’s hard to believe that it’s been over 3 years since I joined the advisory team at Mayo Clinic’s Center for Social Media. The opportunity to collaborate and educate healthcare organizations on the constantly changing digital/social media landscape continues to be a privilege.

That’s why I’m super excited about this year’s events at Social Media Week @ Mayo Clinic where healthcare professionals from all over will be gathering for top notch conversations and learnings on best practices. All of this stems from the work happening at the Center through the Social Media Health Network – this is the premiere platform for individuals, hospitals and organizations to get plugged into a host of Mayo Clinic learning modules/resources. Feel free to poke around here to learn more.

The Social Media Health Network (SMHN) provides access to tools, resources and guidance for organizations as well as individuals who want to use social media for health and health care.

Want to learn a bit more? Let the Center’s rockstars Dr. Farris Timimi (Medical Director) and Lee Aase (Director) talk to you about all the details on getting involved:


I plan on heading out to Social Media Week @ Mayo in October and taking part in many of the immersive learning activities as well as meeting up with colleagues. You should too.

Oh and don’t forget to start following the Network on their new Twitter account! Full of fantastic resources around social media and healthcare.
