I’m excited to be on the faculty again at this year’s 30th Annual Medical Communications Conference.  This year I’ll be presenting two sessions.

First, I’m thrilled that I’ll be speaking with Matthew Holt, founder of TheHealthCareBlog and co-founder of Health 2.0.

We’ll be presenting:

The Rise of the e-Patient and Implications of Social Media Health Care Content

  • Engage and Educate the Health Consumer through Social Media.
  • Learn how to engage health consumers through blogs, twitter and facebook.
  • Step out of your comfort zone and explore new insights and technology.

I hope you’ll be able to join us at this year’s 30th Annual Medical Communications Conference.  It will be in Atlanta, Georgia from August 20-22, 2010.  Stay tuned for more details.

The next session I’ll be presenting a media training class with Christopher Springmann…(stay tuned for more information).

Update – August 11, 2010:  The 30th Annual Medical Communications Conference has been canceled.
