This live virtual activity will focus on how the Internet and social media have shifted how we govern, gossip, communicate, select music and movies, and even find love. In this session, learn how the Internet and social networks are changing, and decentralizing, the ways information and misinformation spread, shaping public perspectives of important public health interventions. Through a successful case study of community water fluoridation, participants will discover how evidence from the fields of computer science and business marketing apply to public health communication and effective message delivery. Practical tools, techniques and strategies will be shared to guide participants on how they can adapt and adopt new approaches to enhance health communication success and achieve community trust in evidence-based public health measures.
