Citing the social media revolution as the most dramatic communications development since the invention of the printing press, earlier this week the Mayo Clinic announced plans for the healthcare industry’s first social media center, based on the belief that all individuals have a right to advocate for their own health. The Mayo Clinic Center for Social Media will be focused on streamlining the ways hospitals, doctors and patients interact and  improving health literacy for all populations.
