Mayo Clinic today announced formation of the Social Media Health Network, a group dedicated to using social media to promote health, to improve health care and to fight disease. Through educational conferences and webinars and development of social platforms for sharing training materials and resources, this international network will help members learn from each other and effectively implement social media programs.
The network is associated with the newly formed Mayo Clinic Center for Social Media. Victor Montori, M.D., medical director for the center, describes the goals for the network and how it is consistent with Mayo Clinic’s history:
Besides Mayo Clinic, charter members of the network include:
