Jim Dockins, FACHE

While looking for Continuing Education courses offered through the American College of Healthcare Executives last month I ran across Christina's book and a course on Social Media.

During a trip back to the US from my home base in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia I picked up the book and CEU course and became quickly immersed in the Social Media phenomena.

For an expatriate health care executive looking to stay connected to the US health scene, the insights in her book have given me an incredible set of tools to keep up personally and moreover to connect my collegues here in the Middle East to the latest topics and trends of the US health sector.

I've already recommended her book to many of my associates as a "must read" book. It was incredibly well written and exactly the tool needed by health care expats to move their organizations outside North America.

Thanks Christina for a tremendous resource!

Thank you, Jim! This is a great example of how social media can benefit us professionally.

You included Twitter in your post. I also encourage you to join LinkedIn and ACHE's group. It is a great way to meet and stay connected with other FACHE's, especially if getting to Chicago can be a challenge.
