Social Media for Family Physician Advocacy and Recruitment

2,466 views

Published on

This is a presentation that I gave to the Florida Academy of Family Physicians in Jacksonville, Florida on October 24, 2009. The content is a general introduction to social media theory, with an emphasis on how the elements of community, authenticity, family and intimacy found in social media directly correlate to family physicians. Additionally, FAFP has been engaging younger doctors through their Facebook page and are looking to take this to the next level.
