Social Media and Medicine: Beginning the Second Era

May 11, 2019

Expert faculty will provide lectures from three different viewpoints to map out the scope of social media in medicine and nephrology. 

Macey Henderson has real world experience in helping patients tell their kidney failure story on social media in order to build interest in getting a living related donor to step up. Her research has produced software that is effective in increasing people coming forward to donate organs. 

Among medical specialties, emergency medicine is the consensus leader in adapting education to social media and Dr. Chan is one of the most accomplished thought leaders. Her group has been front and center in thinking about peer review, accountability, and fitting institutional norms to the wild west of social media. In social media, seeing where emergency medicine is today, is the best clue to where the rest of medicine will be in ten years. 

Lastly, NephMadness is one of the most creative and ambitious social media-fueled education projects in nephrology. It is now in its sixth year. Co-creators Drs. Topf and Sparks will lower veil and reveal the inner workings and lessons of over half a decade of leading this project.
