Pharma IQ is delighted to announce that Chris Brogan has just joined the prestigious speaker panel for the upcoming Social Media in Pharma Online Summit. Chris will share his expertise and experience with Using Social Media in the Highly Regulated Pharma Industry.  

In today's virtual world, patients are creating and engaging in online communities, discussing their treatment options and making product choices based on the information they receive.  

The Drug Safety Council was recently quoted as saying that "Patients are engaging in online conversations about medications whether pharma participates or not." (Source: Drug Safety Alliance, November 2010)
