We are thrilled to announce our next addition to what is becoming a stellar line up for the inaugural international social media conference for doctors – Dr Edwin Kruys.
For those of you who love reading medical blogs of great quality and filled with up to date expert opinion and debate, you would be well aware of Edwin’s blog, Doctor’s bag. I met Edwin via the oustanding and successful @AHPRAaction campaign, and we have kept in touch since, planning and organising #SoMebythesea, so that we can share our experiences about the importance of social media in many domains of advocacy and education.
In a world where blogs are as plentiful as stars in the sky, we have chosen Edwin above others to share his insights about how to create, position, update and promote a successful medical blog post. We hope you leave the event ready to find your unique voice through blogging, so you can influence debates and make a difference.
