Title: Meeting Target Audiences No Matter Where They Are - Strategies for Effective Use of Social Media for Public Health Communication
Date: October 12, 2018 • noon to 1:00 p.m. EDT
You will receive a calendar invitation from WebEx once you register.
This webinar will focus on the value of social media for community outreach and translation of children’s environmental health content. Social media is emerging as a necessary tool for public health communication as more Americans use it (and the Internet more generally) for health information. Yet many organizations lack a basic social media strategy for engaging target audiences. In this webinar, we will cover a number of topics, including:
- A rationale for the use of social media in public health communication.
- Best practices for the use of social media, including examples of how to use social media analytics to capture your reach and engagement with target audiences.
- Examples of social media strategies implemented by the Children’s Environmental Health Social Media Workgroup and the Children’s Environmental Health Network to engage with target audiences.
