Free Food, Free Drink, and Great Peeps – New Media Meetup at #HIMSS13

For those of you who only read EMR and EHR and don’t read EMR and HIPAA (you should really read both and consider subscribing to the EMR and HIPAA email list), I wanted to make sure you knew about the New Media Meetup at HIMSS 2013 (plus we have the details on the food). This is the fourth year for the event and I believe this will be the biggest and best one yet.

A big thanks to docBeat Secure Messaging for sponsoring the event so we can provide free food and drinks to everyone who attends. If you participate in new media at HIMSS, then we’d love to have you Register Here and come meet many other great healthcare social media people.

Now for the details:

Where: Mulate’s Party Hall – 743 Convention Center Boulevard, New Orleans, LA MAP
