Social Media and Clinicians: About our Interview Series

This month we round up our three-part series on EP clinicians and social media. In this article series in EP Lab Digest®, we highlighted various EP clinicians who more recently joined Twitter. These feature interviews described clinicians’ thoughts on joining the social media site, what their experience has been like, and tips to other clinicians considering joining social media.

In our September issue, EP Lab Digest® featured an interview with Pasquale Santangeli, MD from the Electrophysiology Section, Cardiovascular Division of the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He can be found on Twitter at @Dr_Santangeli.

In the first installment of this interview series, we talked with Deb Halligan, RN, BSN, CCDS, Clinical Leader of the Pacemaker/ICD Clinic at North Shore Medical Center in Salem, Massachusetts. She can be found on Twitter at @debhalligan. We also previously spoke with Suneet Mittal, MD, FACC, FHRS, Director of Electrophysiology for the Valley Hospital Health System. He can be found on Twitter at @drsuneet.
