Leveraging Social for Healthcare

March 11, 2014

The Social Media SIG presents…

EvoNexus Superstars, Part 2

Leveraging Social for Healthcare

This CommNexus Social Media SIG event will discuss the latest guidance from the FDA about Social Media participation and the leading edge technologies that can help disrupt the way the healthcare industry interacts with the consumer. For the better part of 15 years we have been peppered with radio, TV and print ads. They are boring, scary and most of the time completely irrelevant. With social networks a new opportunity has arisen that puts the consumer in the power seat. They are empowered, informed and highly selective. Find what types of content strategies and tools are being used to unlock this opportunity.
