#hcsm – Event Today in Boston, MA

1 04 2011

So today was finally the day!!! I woke up bright and early to get into Boston for our “Harnessing the Power of Social Media in Healthcare Communications” event. Despite the calendar reading April 1st, it was not an April Fool’s joke that it was snowing, and snowing hard. I thought for sure this would result in low attendance records and was shocked when there were close to 50 attendees.  Not only did so many people but they were all fully engaged, many had laptops or mobile devices that allowed them to participate in the discussion through Twitter by using our the designated hashtags #rpgsm and #hcsm. I have to admit I would sometimes stop paying attention to Twitter to ensure I didn’t miss anything but it was definitely interesting to return to the office and see how many people were tweeting back and forth and diving down deeper into some of the issues the speakers touched upon. Once again I was amazed by the power of social media. In a room of strangers, social media was connecting all of them. Below are just some of the tweets from during the event.
