Today's the day for #rxchat!!!!!

I'm soooooo excited to finally get this project off the ground!

The idea for this project came about from my participation in @agchat on Tuesday evenings. I've only been able to join in the conversation a few times, but I've often gone back and looked over everyone's answers to the questions submitted on the topic after the conversation was over. #agchat has allowed me to connect with several ag tweeps across the country and I thought, "why couldn't I do this for pharmacy?"

Well guess what? Now I'm doing this for pharmacy!

The first ever #rxchat will take place on Twitter Today!! I've had this idea for a few months to create a pharmacy chat on Twitter where pharmacists, physicians, patients, and anyone else who wants to join the conversation can answer questions about specified topic related to the pharmacy profession.
If you're on Twitter be sure to follow @rxchat and to use the hashtag #rxchat in the search column to see the tweets and updates from the conversation.

Here's all the info:

The Twitter #rxchat will take place Today, April 11th from 4-5pm CST. The chat will allow participants to share their views on the questions asked and allow students, faculty, and pharmacy professionals to network, and connect with each other. The topic for the chat will be "the role of social media in the pharmacy profession." There will be a series of approximately ten questions asked over the course of the hour. If you have any questions you would like to submit for the chat please send them in a Direct Message to @rxchat
I hope to see you join the conversation this afternoon! Wish me luck as I jump in with both feet and moderate my first Twitter chat! I'll let you know how it goes! 

A BIG THANK YOU goes out to Kelly M. Rivard,  Brandi Buzzard Frobose, and my General Medicine I preceptor, Eric Wombwell, for all of their help and guidance with this project!  You guys are awesome and I couldn't of done this without your encouragement! 

See you on Twitter at 4pm!
