On February 17, join us for the PNR Rendezvous on How Patients Use Social Media. Our guest presenters will be health and science journalist Sally James and patient advocate, Stacey Tinianov. Sally and Stacey will lead you through how patients, as well as clinicians and researchers, increasingly use Twitter and Facebook to find and exchange many kinds of health information: including technical information about diseases, comparisons of treatments, as well as support for survivor issues in chronic and rare diseases. Live chats on these platforms draw thousands weekly. Some researchers break news about peer-reviewed journal articles first on Twitter. Other researchers are recruiting subjects directly on social media. This webinar will provide practical examples to help you explore and understand how these resources are used and how moderators “curate” and archive tweets and posts from such conversations so they remain accessible.
We hope you can join us but if not, the session will be recorded. Check the PNR Rendezvous webpage a couple of days after the live session.
When: February 17, 1:00pm Pacific Time, Noon Alaska Time, 2:00pm Mountain Time
How: You can participate in this free, web-based interactive session from your desk with your computer and telephone.
