It is universally held that social media is inherently “social” but it does not always follow that social media is friendly too. In the case of Lee Aase, Director of the Mayo Clinic Center for Social Media, he defines the friendly part of social media. Lee is knowledgeable about communications, public relations and healthcare social media. He takes pleasure in sharing his experiences from his own team members at the Mayo Clinic to the global stage as a member of the World Economic Forum Global Agenda on Social Media.
