Social Media & Healthcare: An Opportunity in the Philippines

The Department of Medicine of the Philippine General Hospital hosted the Symposium on Healthcare Improvement Strategies in the New Millennium: Mobile Health Applications and the Digital Media last October 21 at the Science Hall. The Department Chair, Dr. Agnes Mejia asked me to give a short presentation to preface the lecture of Dr. Leonard Achan, Jr on social media and healthcare. Dr. Achan is currently the Vice President of Digital and Social Media and Executive Services at Mount Sinai Medical Center.
