THE USE OF EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES FOR HEALTHCARE MESSAGES


June 10-11, 2014

Houston, Texas

 
 


ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

As technology evolves, so do our methods of communication. Messenger pigeons gave way to telegraphs, which were replaced by telephones, mail, and email. Now we rely on Facebook or twitter to keep in touch and make new connections.  It is imperative that we understand the role of Social Media and how it is being used in the lives of clients we serve.

In our fun and interactive sessions, you will:

  1. Identify the latest social media for effective education and 

    communication

  1. Explain the advantages of using new media to interact with

    clients and to promote community health

  1. Discuss evaluation of the impact of new technology on health

    programs

  1. Explore diverse perspectives with regards to the use of social media

    in patient education and communication

  1. Describe how to affordably use the appropriate technology with

    clients

  1. Explore how to become a model for other community

    organizations


WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

This event is for Health Professionals, especially those who want to learn more about how to better serve their clients using technology.  However the conference is open to anyone interested in learning more about the growth and power of social media.
