Social Media at the 2019 Annual Assembly of Hospice and Palliative Care

by Christian Sinclair (@ctsinclair)

The Annual Assembly of AAHPM and HPNA is this week and if you are going to Orlando, or staying home to keep things running smoothly, social media can help make your conference experience be transformative.  Since 2009, the Assembly has been making use of Twitter to provide additional insight, commentary and sources for the multiple sessions each day. Now things are expanding to dedicated conference apps, Facebook and Instagram. And for the third year in a row, the Tweet of the Day (#hpmTOTD) will bring you the highlights of the conference and #hpmBingo will help make sure you do as much as you can while at the Assembly.If you don't know how to use Twitter to your full potential, just keep an eye out for Tweet Pros and don't be shy. If you just want some general tips for attending the Annual Assembly read up on our handy hints for attending a national conference.

The official hashtag of the conference: #hpm19 (works on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram), use it in every tweet this week!
