Dr. Wes to Speak in Boston in May

If you're in Boston for the Heart Rhythm Society Scientific Sessions May 8-12, 2012 please join me Thursday night, May 10th, 6:30 pm at  Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, 45 School Street in the Old City Hall, Boston, MA 02108 (just 10 minutes by taxi from the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center).  I will be speaking on the value and challenges of social media for tomorrow's physicians.   Like my earlier ACC talk, the event is once again graciously sponsored by Zoll LifeVest (the wearable defibrillator folks).  The full invite with RSVP details is here

Due to the event's overwhelming popularity at the ACC and the swank upcoming venue, please RSVP by 1 May to help Zoll with an approximate head count.  For those who remain socially challenged, please come anyway.  We understand. Rest assured you'll still be welcomed and there should be enough food, drink, er, educational content to convert even the most schizoid among us.  After all, this is SOCIAL media we're talking about.

A live, interactive Twitter feed will accompany the talk for those who's like to follow along out there in the InterNets but can't attend in person - just use the hashtag #ZollHRS and a software program like Tweetchat to see the streaming commentary in near real-time. Feel free to post your questions and comments, too.  The more entertaining educational, the better.   (It'll be fun to see how many distinguished anonymous commenters we can identify!)  

Also, I have learned that my fellow cardiac electrophysiology colleagues (who are forces in the social media in their own right) will be attending:  John Mandrola, MD of Louisville, KY who blogs at the Dr. John M blog  and for's Trials and Fibrillations blog (Twitter: @drjohnm), and Edward J Schloss, MD of Cincinnati, OH (Twitter: @EJSMD).  No doubt they'll be happy to share some of their insights with you as well.

Finally, if you're feeling particularly brave, consider leaving a comment to this post if you'll be attending so others can see who will be joining us.  (Doing so just might inspire others who are on the fence about attending.)

See you in Boston!
