Twitter is a powerful social networking platform and it allows health professionals to deeply connect and engage with the community. Health care professionals can help educate consumers, raise awareness of health issues and collaborate. This phenomenal platform gives a voice to patients and consumers, and it helps start the conversation with doctors, nurses and other health care professionals.

Thank you, Marie, for this valuable list, and I am honored to be included.
