Quickly Noted: brochure2Blog

April 30, 2008

A colleague who knows about my interest in web 2.0 stuff tipped me off to what looks like a really interesting webinar that’s taking place on May 8th.

Entitled brochure2Blog, the program is

designed to educate participants to new possibilities in carrying out public health communications by focusing on two areas of change: new technologies and evolving public media consumption.

While I think that the b2B program will be focusing on traditional public health risk communication, these are lessons that can be applied to everyone in public health, including folks in preparedness. As we’ve seen with the LAFD Twitter page, the ARC disaster blogs, the Play2Train emergency management islands in Second Life, and the Orlando PD Youtube page, new tools are available, we just have to take advantage of them. Hopefully this program will serve as an introduction into the world of social media to the public health community.

Check out the site here, and be sure to register for the May 8th program. I’ve already got it marked on my calendar and plan to listen in.

    At the Rock River Chapter of the American Red Cross we not only now blog, but we have a MySpace page, YouTube Channel, and we’re going to be on twitter soon. We have already seen a really positive response from the public and I think it helps make our organization more personable and have a direct dialog with them. I think the web should be more of a dialog between everyone then a monologue.

    Thanks for stopping by Jason. I appreciate what you guys are trying to do down there, and applaud you for your efforts.

    Keep up the good work, and don’t be a stranger.
