Thanks so much to the Pennsylvania Academy of Family Physicians for the opportunity to chat with them a few months ago about the topic of social media. They just published the fall issue of their membership magazine called "Keystone Physician."
They talked with numerous Family Physicians and social media enthusiasts (ie - those from #FMRevolution) about their take on social media now and in the future. Here is my quote published in the magazine (on page 41)...
I really believe that the AAFP has reached a tipping point at the 2011 Congress of Delegates and Scientific Assembly meetings with things like live streaming COD sessions, getting real-time feedback with twitter, and featuring social media sessions at the Scientific Assembly
On a personal note, I was interviewed by Family Practice News and PrimaryCareClinician.com about the impact of social media and Family Medicine. Finally, the AAFP Board of Directors has made social media a priority with the AAFP President's twitter account and leadership blog.
The Academy is well positioned in 2012 for Family Medicine Advocacy through social media platforms!
I also invite you to read my full summary of this year's annual meeting in the post "AAFP Embraces Social Media." You can also see a video interview by Family Practice News in my blog post "Social Media Tips For Physicians."
