Trustworthy Health Content Resources for your Practice

One of the biggest challenges practices face when updating their social networking sites is finding reputable sources to site. As we discussed in our previous blog post, Content: The good, the bad, and the ugly, practice should only use content that is:

2)      Endorsed by an industry recognized authority on the subject
