Meet KevinMD at Winter Conference

Kevin Pho, MD, a Nashua, N.H., primary care physician and the "KevinMD" behind the popular and influential blog, will speak at the 2011 TMA Winter Conference  Jan. 28-29 at the AT&T Conference Center in Austin.

Dr. Pho's presentation, "Medicine in the Age of Social Media," will address why physicians should engage in blogs, Twitter, or Facebook, and will include:

  • Examples of how doctors are connecting with patients in social media platforms;
  • Risks and what doctors should look out for; and,
  • Reflections on his social media journey over the years.
