CNBC News is reporting Jefferson Health's Chief Medical Social Media Officer, Dr. Austin Chiang, is recruiting doctors to get on Twitter, Instagram, and other social media to drown out untrustworthy medical news. Dr. Chiang is known on Instagram as the GI Doctor and has 20,000 followers making him a very influential doctor apart from other TV personalities. He is also active on LinkedIN, Twitter, and Facebook and posts regularly to counter other accounts like 'Medical Medium', a psychic who raves about how vegetables cure disease, or other illegitimate content. Dr. Chiang is encouraging other doctors to heed the call and get on social media to combat the wrong and misinformation flooding posts and hopes to recruit at least 3,000 doctors to start using their social media platform.
