Why spend time on social media (SM) if you’re not benefiting from it?
I’m not talking about the short term benefits such as getting “likes” and “followers”, except you’re an “influencer”.
The benefits I mean are…
I. Financial benefits
- Health benefits
- Information benefits
- Psychological benefits
The aim of this post is to highlight the Health benefits of Social media presence.
Not many of us are opportune to have Medical personnel around us either as friends or family.
So we depend solely on hear-say or what our physicians say. Physicians we only get to see when we’re sick. Unfortunately…
So, I’m going to do something I expect a lot of people to benefit from.
I’m going to make a thread of Doctors you must follow on social media (Instagram, Facebook or twitter).
This is based on my own unbiased observations.
I shall introduce to you Doctors whose SM accounts I have gone through and, are also a huge asset to patients, the general public and medics alike.
They churn out health information that many pay to have. They do it with the sole aim of raising awareness on health.
So without bias, I took out time to make this thread based on Public health awareness, engagements and willingness to educate followers free of cost (or with a little token consultation fee if need be).
Medicine is shifting towards PREVENTIVE RATHER THAN CURATIVE MEDICINE in most developing countries.
So following them will give you a lot of health benefits…
It is unfortunate that the health benefits potential of SM presence is underutilised, rather most individuals expend so much energy in less productive ventures.
Sad but true!
