Hello, readers. We know you’re busy and sometimes don’t get a chance to catch up with your online reading as well as your networking with others involved in getting healthcare more social.
So, to help those of you catch up on your doses of healthy social media content, we’ll regularly publish short lists of our recent posts and elect news and content we think you’ll find interesting: Healthy Links.
And to help you find interesting people, we’ll offer follow recommendations for those of you addicted to Twitter: Social Ties.
We’re also starting a Newsletter. We want to give those of you seeking change in healthcare and 21st Century communications as much support in reaching your goals. You can read more about our newsletter and subscribe here.

Expect Healthy Links and Social Ties to come out on a regular basis. We’ll also include others in our newsletter.
