Out in San Diego tonight, the 2013 Congress of Delegates begins for the American Academy of Family Physicians. Unfortunately, I will not be in attendance because of scheduling challenges with work.
The good thing is that it will seem like I'm there because of social media, specifically twitter, and the hashtag #AAFPCOD. Shout out to all my friends who are there, and I hope that they will keep us updated.
Did want to give out a shout out to our pal Dr. Glen Stream who mentioned me in the video above right before he became AAFP President. It was also with Dr. Stream that the twitter handle @aafpprez was started. Our pal Dr. Reid Blackwelder who will be taking over the @aafpprez twitter feed this week.
If you're like me, and cannot attend the Congress of Delegates in person, don't worry, AAFP is live video streaming parts of the proceedings this year again at this link. Thanks to AAFP for using digital communication like video streaming and social media to get the message out about Family Medicine and #FMRevolution!
