What is a Social Media Catalyst?
A social media catalyst is an influencer whose online presence is laser-focused on a specific topic, trend, or event. SMCs will be the voice of the meeting, providing real-time insights into the presentations delivered onsite and virtually. Throughout #HFSA2021, SMCs will be promoted by HFSA as ambassadors for the conference and recognized by HFSA for their contributions on the official meeting website. SMCs will also have the opportunity to network with other SMCs and HFSA faculty.
