The results of a recent study conducted for Kaiser Permanente analyzed physicians’, health reporters’ and Congress members’ social media discussion of certain prevalent diseases.

Hello My Friends,
Remember Kathy Greenlee's presentation at the Leadership Academy? She talked about monetizing and quantifying the value of your service. Aging services must learn to speaking new vocabularies of business, technology, financing, social media and others in order to survive in today's economy. I am aware that this is a macro approach when we as human service workers tend to look from a micro perspective of each person we serve. So this will be a game changer for you.
