Using social media to improve adolescent health is the topic of a conference being held in Seattle next week. One way that social media can improve health is by providing easy access to information about health-related topics, such as teen drug use. In the video below, Dr. Megan Moreno talks about how parents can guide their children in accessing online health information.
Similar videos are available on the SMAHRT YouTube page, providing a good example of how social media can be used to share health-related information. Prevention WINS shares information through YouTube, Facebook, this blog, and Twitter.
The conference takes place July 31 through August 2 and information is available on the SMAHRT website. Registration costs $10 per day - a bargain!
