As physicians fight on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic, the physician voice needs to be heard across multiple channels. Social media is a powerful platform to amplify your voice,  partner with others and raise awareness of an issue.  During social distancing, it's even more powerful.  But even in good times, navigating Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and social media can be tricky. In particular, physicians should consider unique risks and rewards. 

Join MSDC this Saturday morning, April 11, at 10:00 AM for a social media and advocacy webinar on issues that are top-of-mind and impact physicians across the nation and here in our Nation’s Capital  You’ll hear from physician social media influencer Anjali Malik, MD on how to use social media effectively (various channels a physician can use, how to develop a presence, where to find content and how to participate in what’s trending e.g. #GetMePPE). MSDC Executive Vice President Robert Hay will dive into the legislative and high-profile issues MSDC is advocating on before the DC Council and other efforts to support District physicians. He will  share tips for messaging so you can make the case to decisionmakers for action to support District physicians.  There will be time for Q& A during this webinar.
