Speaking Engagements

I’ll be out on the road quite a bit in the next month, spreading the word about social media tools and their application in health care, and sharing our Mayo Clinic experience and perspective. If you’d like to participate in any of these conferences, I’m sure the organizers can get you details on how to join.

I look forward to getting to meet a lot of folks in real life after only having interacted via Twitter.  If I’m going to be in your area, I hope we can Tweetup!

Alternatively, you may see a link in the sidebar that looks like this.


Click the Log in link, and you will see a screen where you can log in. But I’m getting ahead of myself; watch the video and you’ll see step-by-step how you enter and save your posts as a contributor.
