In this entertaining talk, recorded at TEDxEustis 2020, Dr. Juanita Benedict makes the case for utilizing social media to create and sustain a larger community and grow connections. Dr. Benedict is a life long student of human interaction. From her formal studies in Sociology and Philosophy to her every day interaction with her patients as a physical therapist, she has never passed up an opportunity to learn more about how people navigate this world. Dr. Benedict travels throughout the United States helping physical therapy business owners and other medical professionals understand how to harness the power of social media to improve their online relationships with their patients. To further promote the positive use of social media and help people connect with each other, she has recently begun a new initiative to help women forge new friendships with online game nights. She is a firm believer that we do not have to live in a disconnected world. Dr. Benedict is a life long student of human interaction.
