This is probably wrapping up our #MedComms Day 2020 activity… Tim Collinson from Fishawack Health has sent in his news from the west coast of the USA.
Hi everyone, happy #MedComms day… or evening for most of you at this point. The day here in California is well underway, with the string of early morning calls being the norm; a new norm is that previously camera-shy physicians, clients and colleagues have pulled that blob of gum off the camera lens and are now practically filmstars completely at ease with kitchen/bedroom backdrops, pets, children… I work remotely anyway, and the uptick in face-to-face contact is a welcome shift (for me at least – not necessarily those subjected to my 7am face and wild social-isolation-hairstyle). For this year’s #MedCommsDay, Fishawack is celebrating ‘Distance is no object!’. Today also brings our regular West Coasters’ virtual coffee break – nothing virtual about the coffee or the break, just 15 mins’ chitchat about nothing in particular among the Fishawack Pack in San Diego, up to Redding CA and a few places in between. It’s a habit we’ll keep post-pandemic. I’m wondering how interactions during next week’s ISMPP virtual annual meeting will go – I always look forward to seeing people at the live meeting but virtual is the next best thing. Maybe see some of you ‘there’… Stay healthy!
