How are social media and Public Health related? How can we use social media to spread Public Health messages? We addressed these questions on July 26 at our Social Media Training seminar for our local public health partners. The training was created with the following four goals in mind:

  • Provide practical training on use and management of social media tools
  • Connect Social Media and Public Health
  • Connect with other Local Public Health Agencies (LPHAs)
  • Provide attendees with quality outside sources for social media information

To learn more about the connection between social media and Public Health, as well as how social media can help spread public health messages see the powerpoint and video from our training posted below, or view and download Creating and Connecting with an Online Community: A Social Media Guide for Local Public Health Agencies (above).
