Do you use Facebook groups to network with other healthcare providers? Do you manage a department that is looking into new ways of using digital marketing to attract more patients? Are you aware of all the ways that employees may use work devices to interact with others on platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube or LinkedIn? If any of these questions lead you to feeling unsure or curious, then this webinar is well worth your time.
