Dear AAS Members,
HERE IT IS!!! The AAS Blog!
As technology and social media have become an ever-important method for networking and dissemination of science, we as a society must leverage digital media in order to best serve our community. The digital world represents a tremendous opportunity to improve the AAS membership’s ability to network but in order to do so we must keep a dynamic presence outside the confines of our national meeting.
AAS is “raising the bar” for its outreach in to the modern digital space. Our goal is to provide the membership with improved networking opportunities and useful information while simultaneously increasing exposure and notoriety of the efforts of the AAS and its members.
This blog upgrade to the AAS website will be looking for students, residents, and faculty to contribute. This is your chance to submit your work and thoughts on academic surgery. We are not seeking long, formal manuscripts but rather short blog posts on any topic relevant to the mission of the AAS.
The AAS executive leadership has formed a workgroup who will approve content submissions and our society webmaster will get it uploaded as soon as it is reviewed. A wide variety of submissions will be considered with themes including education, outcomes, quality, basic science, leadership, management, career development, diversity, and productivity. Above all, we want the content to be informative, relevant, and fresh.
So if you are interested please email JJ Jackman at the AAS Office and volunteer.
Now is your chance! Tell us what you think about the AAS blog – how can we use it best? What topics would you like to see?
Chair, AAS IT Committee
