I’m annotating her wonderful list!
1. To connect
I checked my Twitter profile page. I’m following 1,369 tweeps! I really should organize them into Twitter lists by interest but I haven’t. I like the serendipity of scanning my feed and finding nuggets of information. Probably not the most efficient way of doing things, but it works for me. I can write an entire blog post on the many people I have met on Twitter who have helped me in one way or another. For a teaching award I recently won, I’d like to acknowledge Dr. Charles Severance (@drchuck) and Deirdre Bonnycastle (@Bonnycastle). Dr. Chuck’s slide deck on a simple lecture recording setup and Deirdre’s medical education blog helped me a lot!
2. To engage
I join the #HealthXPh tweet chat every week. Here I am able to engage not only with healthcare professionals but also patients and patient advocates.
@HealthXPH Good morning. Patient Advocate Sanford joining this morning. #HealthXPH

4. To reflect
T1 Heartbreak is the not matching, the waiting, if it were my child>> would be distraught. Look to other ways to increase organs. #healthxph — Bernadette Keefe (@nxtstop1) May 2, 2015
5. To share Dr. Tapia (@cebumd) is one of the founders of #HealthXPh. He is on dialysis for polycystic kidney disease. He wrote the pre-chat blog post on using social media for finding organ donors and crowdsourcing funds.
Sorry I am late. I had to stay longer in the dialysis facility due to cramps #healthxph — Narciso Tapia MHPEd (@cebumd) May 2, 2015
@Teddybird for PKD patients, difficult to get related donors on one side of family tree due to genetics #HealthXPh — Narciso Tapia MHPEd (@cebumd) May 2, 2015
6. To be challenged
As Social Media activists, we should raise awareness about the organ shortage but be cognizant of the ethics of transplantation #HealthXPH — Edgar V. Lerma (@edgarvlermamd) May 2, 2015
It needs a social media champion. Someone like @cebumd? @JeamesSailor @helenvmadamba @HealthXPh #HealthXPh — Iris Thiele Isip Tan (@endocrine_witch) May 2, 2015
7. To be supported This! From my friend Gia, #HealthXPH co-founder.
