Lee Aase, Director of the Mayo Clinic Center for Social Media, will give a presentation, “Bringing the Social Media Revolution to Health Care” to the health and wellness executives attending the 4th M2W®–HW™ - The Marketing Health & Wellness to Women Conference, April 18, 2013, Hard Rock Hotel, Chicago. He will share how Mayo progressed naturally from traditional media relations, to direct-to-consumer news delivery, to giving patients a platform for their stories.
Aase’s session will describe the steps taken, safeguards developed and concrete results achieved. He will share Mayo Clinic’s vision to move social media use beyond marketing, applying these revolutionary tools to improve health and health care for people everywhere.
Aase explained, “The social media revolution is the defining communications trend of the third millennium. From blogs to Facebook to Twitter to YouTube, the power of worldwide broadcasting and publishing is now available to anyone. Organizations of all types need to at least take into account how these technologies are likely to affect them. Better yet, they should proactively explore how they can use these tools creatively to accomplish organizational objectives.”
