I mentioned previously that I was a part of a panel on healthcare social media at the Digital Health Conference in New York City. The video from the healthcare social media panel was just posted on YouTube and so I thought I’d share it with those who weren’t able to attend the Digital Health Conference. It was a pretty diverse panel that offered a number of different perspectives and insights in how to use social media in healthcare. The names of the panelists are listed below the video.
