Social Media Toolkit for State MCH Professionals
A new toolkit offers information about the growing importance of online information, including social media, for obtaining information about health and medical issues. Social Media in the States: Providing Instant Access to Emerging Issues was developed by the Maternal and Child Health Library (MCH Library) at Georgetown University in collaboration with AMCHP and with support from the HRSA MCHB. It discusses how emerging issues can be tracked through social media in the states and provides links to resources, including a live feed of Twitter accounts, a list of state health department Facebook and Twitter accounts and other resources to help states use social media.
