Dr. Wendy Stern (Vice Chair - Public Relations Committee of the Board of Governors of the American Academy of Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery) along with Dr. John Carter (AAO-HNS Section for Residents and Fellows) organized this talk coordinating 4 speakers including:
• Dr. Lawrence Simon (Assistant Professor at Louisiana State University) providing an overview of social media and its pervasiveness
• Myself from the view of a private practice
• Dr. Julie Wei (Division Chief at Nemours Childrens Hospital in Orlando, FL) from the perspective of an academic medical practice
• Dr. Lee Eisenberg (Associate Clinical Professor at Columbia University) portraying the medical-legal pitfalls of social media
During this presentation, it was great to hear, see, and meet other otolaryngologists active in social media including @ENTinTraining, @ent_amy,@ithinkalot as well as blogger Dr. Bruce Campbell (Reflections in a Head Mirror; aka @headmirror).
One of my former mentors at Duke University, Dr. Richard Scher, was also present.
