Social Media and Mesothelioma Blog Offer Opportunities to Connect Patients and Families with Critical Information
East Alton, Ill.
The Simmons Hanly Conroy continues to use the Internet to reach out to mesothelioma patients and families affected by the rare asbestos cancer. Earlier this year, the Illinois-based firm launched an award-winning Mesothelioma Video Library covering mesothelioma-related topics. Now the firm has launched the Mesothelioma Support blog.
“Over the years we’ve worked with so many families, doctors, and experienced asbestos experts – we’ve developed such an incredible network of resources,” explained Michael Angelides, partner at Simmons Hanly Conroy. “We feel compelled to try to connect families with the best information and resources possible, legal or otherwise, and reaching out online is just one of the ways we try to do that.”
The Simmons Hanly Conroy has also established a presence on social media sites like Twitter and Facebook. Angelides explained that newer social networking or Web 2.0 opportunities like Facebook and Twitter allow the firm to reach out and present information to all age groups, adding “It’s a remarkable opportunity for Simmons Hanly Conroy to help folks we may never even meet.”
