The most recent issue of AJT, under AJT report discusses the Transplant web and what is on the web for transplantation. It discusses many issues that pertain social media and transplantation. It brings home key points that patients are using the internet for their information and physicians are to be aware of that. Social media can be a very good and powerful tool to discuss and teach physicians, students and patients. Many centers around the country are using it. Mayo Clinic has a social media center.
