Social Media Workshop Description

Attendees will learn how to incorporate social media, an increasingly important outreach tool in public heath, into their community outreach and translation work. An expert panel will present on the use of social media for public health outreach followed by an interactive training for all levels of users, from beginners to advanced. Following the workshop, a social and networking mixer will take place downtown Durham, location TBD.
