I’m thrilled to announce that the Mayo Clinic is exporting its Social Media Residency to the Lone Star State. The Baylor Health Care System will be hosting the residency on September 10-11. If you represent an institution or hospital and you want to rub elbows with some experienced and forward thinking social media professionals, you need to check it out. Beyond the residency itself is the amazing networking opportunity.
We’ve got a great line-up in place with an amazing program. Faculty members include the physician and administrative leaders of the Mayo Clinic Center for Social Media (MCCSM), as well as several members of the MCCSM Advisory Board.
- Lee Aase (@Lee Aase), the director of MCCSM and Chancellor of Social Media University, Global (SMUG).
- Chris Boyer (@Chris Boyer), an MCCSM Advisory Board member and the AVP of Digital Strategy for Northshore/LIJ Health System in New York.
