Social Media: Going Viral Against HIV and STIs

Social Media.  Going viral Against HIV and STIs

The New York State Department of Health AIDS Institute, in partnership with and the New York State Clinical Education Initiative Exit Disclaimer, is hosting Social Media: Going Viral Against HIV and STIs Exit Disclaimer tomorrow, December 7, 2010, at New York University’s Kimmel Center Exit Disclaimer. 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 Exit Disclaimer 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 Exit Disclaimer 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 Exit Disclaimer 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!

    This is truly a wonderful event. I find that the information put out must be repeated over and over for the public to get it. So many mixed messages and incorrect info. Short statements like ( ITS A GET IN NOT GET ON YOU VIRUS ) ( THE CURE IS KNOWLEDGE )

    I am an HIV/AIDS Educator engaged in awareness, education, outreach/prevention activities and I think its great to use all tools, outlets, etc available to get the word out- this disease lives on!
