SOCIAL MEDIA GUIDELINES

To educate and protect our members from the risks associated with the use of social media, the NANOS Ethics Committee developed a NANOS Advisory Opinion on Social Media and Professionalism.

NANOS offers the following recommendations for how to be a positive influence in social media settings and to maintain professionalism:

a. Identify yourself and your qualifications
b. Identify why you are offering information and how it is substantiated
c. Be trustworthy, honest, and reliable

DEI TASKFORCE REMINDER

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are integral to the NANOS culture and we are committed to creating an equitable and inclusive Society for all.

These questions are optional and your answers will remain confidential and de-identified. Your participation will give us a better picture of who makes up our Society and help us ensure that we are a diverse, equitable, and inclusive group.

Here is how you can help:

Together we can overcome the challenges of today and build a better tomorrow for everyone.
