#hcsm – May 8, 2011

Watch the live #hcsm stream from May 8, 2011 at 8pm Central here (new window). If you missed the chat, you should be able to come back and scroll through it again, any time. (Availability of archive depends on how Twitter API is working during the chat. I recommend searching for #hcsm directly on Twitter in real-time to watch/participate in the chat.)


  1. We often talk about using SM for public health…but first, what is public health? Is there only one ‘public’ that needs health?
  2. We also talk about how doctors should be using social media – why? If they’re not diagnosing online, what are they doing? What do we want them to be doing? What do THEY want out of SM?
  3. How can SM be used for patient engagement? What are specific examples of programs or projects that are empowering patients?

Don’t forget – if you’d like to submit a topic for a future #hcsm chat, you’re welcome to! Read the details on the different ways to submit a topic for a #hcsm chat.
