I spoke recently at a MassMEDIC conference about the FDA and social media, and on a webinar presented by the Mayo Clinic Center for Social Media (with which I am associated, as a member of its external advisory board) and Ragan Communications, and I will be speaking at a number of upcoming conferences.  It occurred to me that it would be worthwhile to share information about these events for those who may be interested.

Feedback I've received from some program participants is that topics covered in an hour-long session on health care social media sometimes get short shrift.  For those who may be interested in more in-depth treatment of some issues, I'll call to your attention the webinar series to be held in mid-July (four hours over two days).  Let us know about any particular areas of interest when you register, and we will endeavor to include a more comprehensive treatment of those issues.
