While we encourage the use of social media before, during, and after WORLDSymposium as a way to share information and network with other attendees, we remind you to adhere to WORLDSymposium’s social media guidelines and policies:

  • Post copyrighted or trademarked material or material protected by other intellectual property rights.
  • Use WORLDSymposium’s social media platforms to comment on medical, legal, or litigious matters.

People who participate in social media activity associated with the Annual Scientific Meeting are expected to:

  • Maintain a courteous and respectful demeanor in their comments and posts.
  • Contribute value and expertise.
  • Represent themselves and their organizations truthfully and professionally.
  • Recognize that social media conversations include a variety of professionals, patients, policymakers, reporters, and the general public.
