How did pharma use Twitter at #ASCO16?

Each year, ASCO’s Annual Meeting brings together 30,000 oncology professionals from around the world, here we explore the #ASCO16 hashtag and how pharma utilised the channel during this year's event.

ASCO’s Annual Meeting has led the way in terms of social media utilisation. Indeed ASCO themselves state that “Social media serves as one of the major public health engines of the 21st century, granting doctors and the general public alike unprecedented access to information on cancer prevention, treatments, research, and survival.”
