Last year, TORCH established a presence on both Facebook and Twitter as a means to enhance networking and information dissemination among its hospital and corporate members. We hope that if you are a part of these online communities already, that you will consider join our sites as soon as possible.
These could become very powerful tools as we head toward the next state legislative session and work to educate the newest members of Congress on rural health issues. There are links at the top of our homepage that will lead you to each site and give you the opportunity to join or to register for a new account. It is a quick and easy process and you will then have access to TORCH and countless other organizations and individuals that are of interest to you both personally and professionally.
Also, we recently created a LinkedIn Group that is dedicated to TORCH, its members and other stakeholders who serve rural hospitals as a part of their studies or career. LinkedIn is primarily a networking site for working professionals. It is also used quite extensively by job seekers and for recruiting.
The TORCH LinkedIn Group page can support messaging and discussions and let you explore your colleagues resumes and accomplishments. We hope that in addition to Facebook and Twitter, that you will join us at Linked in as well. Click on any one of the logos below to get started.
