Feb 7, 2012, 1:00 PM

If you deciphered the headline, you’ve got the makings of a Twitter pro! A few days ago, our 25,000th Twitter follower came on board, and is now receiving newsy and interesting tweets (about six to ten a day) from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) Human Capital portfolio. What about you?

If you were getting our tweets, last Thursday, you’d have learned about an RWJF Harold Amos Medical Faculty Development program scholar who’s breaking new ground in sickle cell anemia research.

Last Wednesday, you’d have seen our tweet about a nifty new infographic on the RWJF Facebook page, shining a spotlight on an RWJF Community Health Leader who provides free dental care to families in need in Phoenix, Arizona. And you’d have gotten a quick preview of the latest edition of RWJF’s Sharing Nursing’s Knowledge e-letter.

Last Tuesday, you’d have heard about an RWJF Clinical Scholars program alumna who’s launched a unique effort to map life-saving defibrillators in the Philadelphia area, so that they can be found more easily in an emergency.

Throughout the week, you’d also have been kept up to date about coming RWJF grant opportunities.

You can get that and more, all for free. If you’re already on Twitter, go here and follow us. If you’re not already on Twitter, go to www.Twitter.com and register. Then search for us (we’re @RWJF_HumanCap) and follow us. It’s just that simple!
