Question for posting
We are looking at starting an online support group/forum and I'm wondering if there is anyone else in the health care industry out there who

It’s always busy when you attend a professional society annual meeting – attending academic sessions on new research, health policy, educational sessions, networking, catching up with friends, recruiting or job searches, and more. Increasingly, these interactions are being captured online.
Twitter is great at capturing some of these real-time interactions – so who is using it as a way to share his or her annual meeting experience?
