The Mayo Clinic Center for Social Media is convening our first Social Media Scientific Session on Thursday, Oct. 18, 2012 as part of our social media week at Mayo Clinic, and we’re inviting abstract submissions demonstrating the value of social media in health care.
We’re looking for case studies documenting the impact of social media, as well as results from quality improvement projects and IRB-approved research protocols studying the use of social media in health care. Abstracts may relate to data gathered through social media or to the effectiveness of social media interventions.
A panel drawn from our current External Advisory Board will evaluate submissions, selecting qualified abstracts for inclusion in a poster presentation session at the beginning of the Social Media Health Network member meeting.
Submitters of the top three entries will present their findings orally and will receive complimentary admission to both the Social Media Summit and the member meeting.
Here's what Farris Timimi, M.D., the medical director for the Center for Social Media, says about the purpose of the scientific session and the contest:
The entry deadline is Sept. 15, 2012. Download the abstract submission form and see the Social Media Scientific Session Abstract Contest Rules.
The spirit of the contest and the Scientific Session program is broad and inclusive; You'll note on the abstract submission form that we have numerous categories capped by one called "Other." Please contact Dr. Timimi or me via Twitter if you have questions or would like to talk about the program, or connect via email or ask your questions in the comments below.
