The New York State Department of Health AIDS Institute, in partnership with AIDS.gov and the New York State Clinical Education Initiative , is hosting Social Media: Going Viral Against HIV and STIs tomorrow, December 7, 2010, at New York University’s Kimmel Center . Improved integration of social media in HIV and STI prevention and care is the principal goal of this one-day forum.
Going Viral brings together presenters from the public, private and not-for-profit sectors with expertise in social media planning, implementation and evaluation. This at-capacity event will be webcast and you can submit comments or questions online (note: a simple registration is required). And we encourage you to tweet and blog about the event (whether you’re attending in-person or virtually)!
And check out the Going Viral website’s resources page, which includes a catalog of organizations in New York State with an HIV or STI focus that are already using social media. We anticipate that this listing will become more substantial over time — perhaps with Going Viral being a catalyst for this expanding, strategic use of social media tools. Stay tuned!
