Description:

While many may be inclined to dismiss most social media platforms for having little relevance in academia or find the prospect of growing a social media presence, frightening or too time consuming, consider first the surprising ways social media could benefit not only our institutions but also our reach as neurologists. Social media is a valuable tool and resource. This session will discuss the many innovative ways we can use social media to increase our reach and engage with a wide array of communities outside of our academic institutions. This session will also cover social media surprises (not all being fun surprises) and how social media can be used as a vetting tool.
