When life throws you lemons….

Greetings all,

As I skyrocket among the best and brightest in social media, I feel more and more dismayed by the supposed trusted and true services such as website host services and telco’s

Anyway… this will not deter us!

Let’s make lemonade!

Team @medicinesocial has moved mountains to bring this event together, in conjunction with Amora Riverwalk. We have a brilliant line up, and are so looking forward to this event!

We are thrilled we are poised post budget week and have some pretty significant figures in the room to discuss the future of #PCEHR (not the rhetoric, but what we actually think is in the best interests of the public, organise how to consolidate this and construct how we will ensure govt listens this time).

We are also thrilled that we are ready to educate and inform our peers about why and how we must meet wellness warriors to continue to claim our position as those best suited to deliver patient care. We simply can’t believe that patients will listen to us because we are doctors. Google search engines are drowning us out.

We have such a stunning line up…..Dr Brad McKay, GP extraordinaire, media celebrity and passionate advocate for evidence based medicine…Dr Edwin Kruys, our favorite blogger and #PCEHR crusader…Ms Jen Morris, all round splendid patient advocate and passionate public speaker….Dr Tim Senior, health educator, Croakey contributor, and carer of all matters #FOAMed…Dr Sonia Fullerton, leader in the #hellomynameis campaign and @Palliverse coordinator…Dr Joseph Sgroi, advocate for doctors in training, entrepreneur and now using social media to be the thought leader in his area of specialty…Dr Dave Hawkes…drumroll…member of the brilliant #StoptheAVN campaign that led to the demise of the Tenpenny tour which was to be held at Amora…and last but not least, Dr Ben Veness, doctor, visionary, past AMSA president and now one of 2015’s Australian of the year ambassadors.

Plus me. Dr Helen Schultz

Shrink, author, public speaker and chair for the day.

My role will be to expose the psychology of trolling, to discuss where we are heading with #SoMe conferences now we are so used to staying home and watching them, and remaining the coordinator of a fabulous team of people (NOT Telstra..ah hem, when you plan to work after hours you kind of need your internet..) But, gee, @periscope sounds like fun!

Thrilled also to be joined by Dr Mukesh Haikerwal, who has been involved with #PCEHR since inception, loves a good tweet and is a wonderful mentor to me.

Spaces left, the more the merrier, love the retweets but need the numbers! We don’t have sponsors for this event!

Use MS002 at the checkout and tell your friends!

See you there,

Helen and the @MedicineSocial team

Saturday, 16th May 9.00am Amora Riverwalk, Melbourne.
