It’s always fun talking to another Twitter fan! Dr. David Stukus is a real Twitter evangelist, Tweeting under @AllergyKidsDoc, recruiting other physicians to the platform and demonstrating best practices. A Pediatric Allergist at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, Dr. Stukus is a believer in the power of Twitter because he has seen it and been a part of making it happen. From connecting with a patient’s parent to arrange an appointment to speaking at national conferences, Twitter has made things happen for Dr. Stukus.
