posted 07.26.11

TAFP has launched an interactive online presence for the 2011 Annual Session and Scientific Assembly July 27-31, to connect all TAFP members with the latest news, business topics, and more — whether able to attend the conference or not. Through the Annual Session Social Media Portal, a new blog page on, TAFP members can participate, provide input, and interact with our fully-integrated social media program during the entire gathering.

This page — — will be your hub for the latest news; TAFP’s social media feeds; and discussion topics before, during, and after Annual Session. This also includes — for the first time — a live webcast of TMLT’s “Know Before You Sign! What to Look for in a Physician Employment Contract, Including Employment by Non-Profit Health Corporations” with Douglas Kennedy, J.D. The webcast will take place Saturday, July 30, from 5:15 – 6:15 p.m.

We encourage all to participate throughout the event: If you tweet during the conference, don’t forget to follow TAFP on Twitter and include the hashtag #TAFP in your tweets so it’s logged in the conference feed. Also make sure to check in on TAFP’s Facebook page. Post your thoughts on speakers, special events, and exhibitors. Shooting photos? Sign up through Flickr and upload them to our group,, so they’ll be displayed through the social media portal.

Not only will you be able to keep up with your colleagues in Dallas, but you’ll also be able to enrich your experience by connecting with your colleagues around the state, our top-rated speakers, vendors, and staff, and participating in discussions of your choosing — all right here through TAFP’s blog.
