To Be Or Not To Be.. A Physician Influencer

I'm a physician in training who has been approached by a vitamin company to advertise their product. An anonymous submission.

* anonymous *

I’m a PGY-2 and I have somewhat of a presence on social media.
I was approached by a company that wants me to help them with their vitamins.
I haven’t used them before and am hesitant about forming a relationship with them, and having them use my name, and degree.
I do want to do more consulting, using my degree.
I know I’m still a newbie, but I realize that the online space gives me that opportunity.
Who out there has done this successfully? What’s needed?
