Digital Health Mini-MBA: Reed Smith

Reed Smith is a leader in digital marketing for healthcare having been a Hospital Association Marketing Director, a Platinum Fellow in the Mayo Clinic Social Media Health Network and on the Health committee for the SxSW festival. Through his work he realized that other healthcare marketing professionals wanted an opportunity to get an immerse experience in digital marketing to bring their skill set up to date. As a result, he founded the Social Health Institute and one of their first projects is the Digital Health Mini-MBA Certificate program. Developed in partnership with Clemson University the program launches in May 2015 and applications to attend are being accepted now.
