Sharing health information, communicating with patients, answering health questions, updating my professional profile, leaving my electronic footprint
With information overload provided by the internet comes a lack of credibility of sources used, this has significantly impacted how the 21st century person learns about ones health. Health care providers lag behind in keeping up with the electronic revolution at a time where their presence is becoming essential to rectify the imbalance in available info. I blog at habdessamad.com whenever my time allows me, I tweet at @habdessamad and I use this page to further share my knowledge in my field. I invite you to send me private messages with health questions that I can answer within the limitation of this medium. I also use my page to communicate with my patients and to network within my field. Finally, this page helps me keep you updated about conferences I attend and other developments in my career. Thank you for joining me here.
