One of the great benefits of attending the annual SHSMD conference is the opportunity to network with colleagues from around the country – both marketing consultants and hospital marketers. Each year I publish a list of people that I recommend meeting while you’re attending the conference. These are people that I know and value. So take a moment, look over the list below, and make a point of seeking out these marketing professionals as you navigate the three days of this year’s conference!

  • Brian Bierbaum, Priority Integrated Marketing
  • Brian Risinger, Carolinas Medical Center
  • Brooke Tyson Hynes, Tufts Medical Center
  • Jessica Levco, Editor of Ragan Health Care Communication News,
  • Vicki Stevens, Appalachian Regional Healthcare System (!/vlsmds)
  • Stephen Moegling, Franklin Street
  • Jim Rattray, Southcoast Health System
  • RC Hill Smith, Reach 3/Medseek
  • Lee Crouch, MedTouch
  • Dana Smith, Spirit of Women (

And because I can’t stop at ten, here are some of my industry friends that are well worth getting to know (the usual cast of characters!):

Of course, if you see me wandering around the conference please come up and say hello! You can follow my tweets at Look for my blog post tomorrow morning about healthcare marketers to follow on Twitter while attending the SHSMD conference.
