Call for Proposals: Your Opportunity to Make Social Media Week Even Greater

By Miguel Valdez Soto

You've created new ways to use social networking platforms, some worked and others not so much. Same thing with digital tools for monitoring and measuring.

If you're a marketing pro, you've come up with innovative ways to persuade C-Suiters about the value of digital engagement.

Perhaps you're a provider, patient, or caregiver who has developed effective tactics for using digital tools to work collaboratively to deliver -- and receive -- diagnosis and treatment.

What worked? What didn't? Why not? What would you do differently?

Let these questions inspire to you to propose a presentation or case study for the Mayo Clinic Social Media Summit (June 16-17) at our Rochester campus.

Or perhaps you would like to lead a panel discussion of a broader topic. Pull together others who share your interest, and propose the topic together.

Good news: you have a full month. Reality check: February only has 28 days.

Download the Summit Proposal Submission Worksheet to help you prepare your presentation, panel or case study submission.

Submit your proposal online by: Monday, March 9, 2015
