AAIC 2012 Conference: Ask an Expert: Dr. Joshua Chodosh

This is a good example of the inclusion of social media and public outreach by a professional international conference.  The Alzheimer Association International 2012 conference released two videos of Dr. Joshua Chodosh, a primary care physician to capture his responses to questions about Alzheimer’s disease from the Alzheimer’s Association’s Facebook audience.
