My good friend, Tim Brennan, is leaving his position at Tufts Medical Center after many years of service. In my opinion, that occasion is worthy of a blog post! Tim has been the driving force behind much of what Tufts Medical Center and Floating Hospital for Children have accomplished in social media and digital marketing. And he has been in the trenches at some key moments. Tim was in the ED at Tufts MC Tweeting live as the wounded were brought in from the Boston Marathon Bombing. Via Twitter, he quickly corrected inaccurate information and rumors reported by select media outlets.
Over the years, Tim has become one of my favorite people and most valued colleagues. We’ve spoken together at conferences and supported one another professionally. Today the folks at Tufts Medical Center are having a farewell luncheon for Tim. I couldn’t be there, so I recorded this video for them to play at the event. Enjoy!
