Hinman launches new #MyHinman campaign and unveils new G.O.L.D. Program
ATLANTA, Ga., UA: The Thomas P. Hinman Dental Meeting — described by event organizers as the nation’s leading dental meeting and comprehensive source of continuing education in dentistry — has launched its new #MyHinman campaign. When someone posts the official hashtag, #MyHinman, on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram between now and Hinman 2019, which will be held March 21-23, he or she will help raise money for scholarships and be entered into a monthly drawing for $100 cash.
Each month, the winners will be posted at hinman.org/myhinman.
Hinman will donate to the scholarship bank each time a post is shared on social media with the #MyHinman hashtag. Individuals are encouraged to vote for which schools should receive the “My Hinman” scholarships, which will be disbursed to three deserving students. The first, second and third place winners will be announced after Hinman 2019. To see a list of schools and to cast your vote for the school of your choice, visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/MyHinman.
“We are proud to share that for nearly two decades the Hinman Dental Meeting has contributed millions of dollars to students and dental education programs throughout the country,” said Dr. Jonathan Dubin, general chair for Hinman 2019. “The #MyHinman campaign is just another example of our mission, which combined with the delivery of a world-class educational experience at our annual Meeting, truly sets Hinman apart.”
Posts can range from sharing the #MyHinman YouTube video and posting a photo from your last Hinman to inviting your friends to join you at Hinman’s Night Out at the Georgia Aquarium on Friday, March 22. Posts also can simply be sharing Hinman’s page with your followers or identifying which courses, events or speakers excite you the most.
In addition, Hinman’s official housing company, EventSphere, again will match donations to help increase the scholarship amount awarded to the three winners. As a result of EventSphere’s scholarship match at Hinman 2018, Hinman raised $3,000 in additional scholarship funds.
