Ohio State Med Assoc Mtg 2011


I'm very excited to be presenting at the upcoming Ohio State Medical Association Practice Management Symposium on April 1, 2011 in Columbus. My topic is, of course, social media. The title of the presentation is "Engage Online Or Risk Being Left Behind."

Something very cool is that I've been told is that all the sessions will be recorded. So, I'm hoping at some point, that I'll be able to post the prezo here on the site. Plus, if I can figure it out, I'll place my slide on slideshare. But, I don't know how helpful they will be as I don't write a lot of words and I use a lot of pics. I guess I have a little pet peeve about writing a lot - or even any words on slides. I'm weird like that.

I've been told that the crowd will probably not be that familiar with social media. So, I have to make sure that I don't talk too much above their heads. As you can probably imagine, I get excited about social media, and I can easily get carried away with intermediate or advanced concepts and ideas. This isn't good if it's a beginner-type audience.

Did you know that the OSMA has one of the first guidelines published for physicians using social media? If you haven't had a chance, I encourage you to check it out. Thanks again to the OSMA for the opportunity to speak. In addition, for the OSMA members out there, please register for their annual meeting which includes business sessions for policy writing and legislative advocacy. Let your voice be heard!
