Gregory Ramey, PhD, child psychologist at The Children's Medical Center of Dayton, now has his own Facebook fan page. This fan page was created for parents, community members, child care providers and anyone interested in the work of Dr. Ramey. Join the conversation here www.facebook.com/drgregramey.
With the growth of social media, Dayton Children's felt it important to make a presence on Facebook. This fan page will allow Dr. Ramey to post links to his weekly columns, provide tips he finds useful concerning the care of children, ask for parent's feedback and respond to reader questions. In addition, Dr. Ramey will be facilitating ideas from readers concerning topics parents want to see covered in his weekly columns.
"A Facebook fan page will increase the two-way communication between Dr. Ramey and parents in the community and throughout the country," says Betsy Woods, public relations and marketing manager at Dayton Children's.
"The hope is that Dr. Ramey's fan page will provide Dayton Children's with additional feedback on what topics parents want to read about and also serve as another venue for Dr. Ramey to communicate with readers."
