When I attend conferences, meeting and connecting with other healthcare marketers is my favorite activity. I’ve always found that people in our field are gracious with their time and more than willing to share their knowledge with others. That is certainly true of the people who belong to the New England Society for Healthcare Communications (NESHCo).
For those of you attending the NESHCo Conference this week in Massachusetts, I’ve provided a list (below) of a few of the people I suggest you get to know. Just go up and introduce yourself! These are really sharp professionals and extremely nice people. Oh, and by the way, every one of these individuals serves on the NESHCo Board of Directors! This is not an exhaustive list. I recommend meeting all of the NESHCo board members, not just the individuals listed below. When you do meet them, tell them Dan sent you.
