Be a 'Champion' of MDS
The International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society (MDS) encourages individuals to become "Champions" of MDS to help further the mission and advance the field of Movement Disorders.
The MDS Champion Program is designed to engage active members who enjoy using social media. Champions are volunteers who wish to increase the interest, education and participation of clinicians, scientists, trainees, and other healthcare professionals in their region of the world: Asian and Oceanian, European, Pan American and Africa sections.
Social Media Sharing
Help promote MDS by sharing Society-related information with your colleagues. The Society encourages you to use the hashtag #MDSChampion on social media and tag @movedisorder on Twitter. Read More.
Movement Disorders Clinical Practice (MDCP) has recently launched their own Twitter account, under the direction of Co-Editors Kailash Bhatia and Marcelo Merello. Be sure to share with your colleagues and follow the account for news, hot topics, and more: @MDCP_Journal.
Early view articles of the MDS newsletter Moving Along will be posted to the MDS Twitter account periodically. Follow @movedisorder to see the latest updates and join the conversation by using the hashtag #MDSMovingAlong.
The objective of #MDSPearls is to contribute to professional development of movement disorders professionals while at the same time helping promote MDS educational activities.
On the MDS Twitter account, a scientific question will be posted on Monday using the #MDSPearls hashtag. Content for the questions will be drawn from online resources on the MDS website. The answer to that question will be posted with the same hashtag on Thursday with a link for more information.
