There are now so many healthcare marketing and healthcare social media conferences that I have trouble keeping them all straight. I was speaking with Ben Dillon at Geonetric last week and he mentioned that he is leading a workshop at the Social Media & Mobile Technologies for Healthcare Conference. It takes place in Chicago, July 25-27, 2011, and it looks like a pretty good conference. So, I thought I’d share this information with you.
Although this conference does not have many of the big names in healthcare social media (Lee Aase, Ed Bennett, Chris Boyer, etc.) , it does have some excellent presenters and many of the leading organizations are represented. Among the presenters will be Jenn Riggle, Associate Vice President/Director of Healthcare Social Media, CRT/tanaka (@riggrl). I know Jenn through the Virginia Society for Healthcare Marketing and PR and via Twitter. She’ll do a good job. Also presenting will be Ronald Petrovich, Manager, Mayo Clinic Center for Social Media, Medical Edge. My friend Jesse Stremcha, ePhilanthropy Strategist at The Foundation of Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, will be presenting on the subject of ePhilanthropy. Be sure to catch Jesse’s session. You won’t be disappointed.
Check out the conference website and see if it is something you might be interested in. July is a great time of year to visit Chicago!
