Social media experts talk healthcare at VSBrooks.

   Social media has become an important part of our everyday lives, giving each and every person a voice online. With that in mind, we decided to organize a symposium on the implications of social media for the healthcare industry, in collaboration with the South Florida Hospital and Healthcare Association.


 Our renovated offices became a classroom for the afternoon, as healthcare executives gathered for a primer on topics from Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, to blogger outreach and online reputation management, given by a panel of some of the top local experts. There were many questions and animated discussion, as this is a topic that's very much on every marketer's, communicators and institution's radar screens.

Special thanks to our collaborator and social media maven Maria de los Angeles, who put together the panel, and the panelists Alex de Carvalho, Hilda Mitrani, Blanca Stella Mejia, Craig Agranoff and Jeff Zelaya. (Click on their names to find out more about them or as they said, just Google them!)
