Hashtags of the Week (HOTW): Yay, Joyce! Boo, Shutdown! (Week of September 30, 2013)


It’s homecoming this weekend, which makes it a great time for a few cheers, and a little booing of the opposing team.

I have to celebrate, and share my excitement at the announcement of Joyce Lee (one of my Twitter pals) as social media editor for JAMA Pediatrics!

Joyce Lee, M.D., M.P.H., named social media editor for JAMA Pediatrics: http://umhsheadlines.org/02/joyce-lee-m-d-m-p-h-named-social-media-editor-for-jama-pediatrics/

She announced the press release on Twitter this week.

Of course, JAMA Pediatrics ALSO announced it, by retweeting Joyce’s tweet about using Twitter in the press release. How meta.

The tweet that was highlighted in the press release was one of Joyce’s most popular tweets, in which she shared a quote from fellow doctor and social media guru, Kevin Pho, MD who is known in social media as KevinMD.

So what is Joyce doing with social media? Well, a lot, especially recently. I livetweeted her Grand Rounds last month, and you can see the slides here.

After that, I went ahead and blogged a synopsis of some of the most fascinating (to me) aspects of her work with children in social media.

“How Many Hives?”: Social Media Can Prevent a Crisis with Storytelling, Engagement, & Training http://etechlib.wordpress.com/2013/09/04/how-many-hives-social-media-can-prevent-a-crisis-with-storytelling-engagement-training/

Since then, she also recently gave another social media lecture this week, this time to the Robert Woods Johnson Clinical Scholars.

Here are the slides for that talk.

Obviously, she is really good at sharing phenomenal content, and someone you should follow on Twitter. Monday, she and I were both at a keynote on campus by Nedra Weinrich on using social media in injury prevention.

Which was followed up with some recommended Twitter training resources. This one was recommended by Anne-Marie Cunningham, from the UK.

But this week, no surprise, she’s been tracking the government shutdown, and sharing information about how that impacts on healthcare. Here are a few selected tweets.
