Social Media Strategies for Physician Leaders with Dr. Umbereen Nehal

May 17, 2023

As we consume news and information in different ways than in past generations, it is both an opportunity and a challenge for physicians to make use of social media platforms to inform and connect with each other … and their patients.

Mike Sacopulos interviews Umbereen Nehal, MD, MPH, FAAP, a digital health physician leader. She is an MIT Sloan Fellow MBA candidate, a former Medicaid medical director, and a former CMO.

Nehal has been named a “Top Voice” four times by LinkedIn. She is now developing a FemTech venture at MIT, combining her experiences as a patient, caregiver, payer, public servant, certified coach, physician, and advocate.

Crafting an influential presence on social media platforms, Nehal shares:

  • Strategies that have had an impact on the way she practices medicine.

  • How to be a patient advocate via access to patients’ perspectives and patient stories.
