Social Media Lab

The Neurosurgery Research & Education Foundation (NREF), along with the AANS Young Neurosurgeons Committee (YNC), encourage members to take advantage of the new tools available for neurosurgeons to learn, engage and connect with peers.

The AANS Young Neurosurgeons Committee (YNC) and NREF has proudly announced the launch of the NREF-YNC Social Media Lab.

Under the leadership of Christopher S. Graffeo, MD, and Jeremiah N. Johnson, MD, the mission is to promote social media engagement and education among neurosurgeons. The lab will introduce tools designed to assist members who aspire to develop their online brand and to foster connections within neurosurgery.

The first video is an introduction to Twitter for neurosurgeons and reviews everything needed to get started with a professional Twitter profile, including account creation, profile optimization, finding high-yield accounts to follow using the YNC-curated neurosurgery lists and composing a first tweet.
