Valuable Social Media Toolkit

“A guide to using social media to improve reach of health messages, increase access to your content, further participation with audiences and advance transparency to improve health communication efforts.” – August 2010, updated in July 2011  

A few weeks ago I came across this valuable resource online by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and their Office of the Associate Director for Communication. It is filled with tools and resources for health organsations and non-profits to make use. The CDC showcases their Social Media campaign for their Vital Signs campaign, which is very useful.

I was especially interested to see an example of a Social Media Communications Strategy and Evaluation Worksheet, especially since there has been a shift to focus on the scientific evidence of health communication interventions and evaluations. Enjoy reading through this FREE resource, I know I will!

If you are in the Health Communications field, contact me. Let’s stay in conversation, share ideas and learn from one another.
