Health and Wellness

How can social media support prevention and wellness?

January is the month of new resolutions yet a study out of the University of Scranton finds that only 8% of us actually achieve these resolutions. At the same time, about 1 in 3 Americans plan on buying a new fitness tech in 2013. Yet as the image above reminds us, at varying degrees, health is more than a click of a button.

On Wednesday, Jan. 16, SocialButterfly will host the HealthCare Social Media Review, the peer reviewed blog carnival for everyone interested in health care social media.

Call for Submissions: Health Care Social Media Review #14

How can we use social media to better address health and digital literacy?

On Wednesday, Oct. 17, SocialButterfly will host the HealthCare Social Media Review—the peer reviewed blog carnival for everyone interested in health care social media. Given almost 90% of adults struggle with finding and using everyday health information–and since October is Health Literacy Month, this edition will focus on how we can better address health and digital literacy using social media tools.

Posts sharing insights on the role of health literacy in digital technology are encouraged. Posts that highlight current work in progress or discuss health and/or digital literacy in general are also welcomed.

As added inspiration, check out the Health Literacy Hackathon occurring October 13-14. Participants will be given one day to design a technology-driven tool to improve how people understand and use health information. Note: RTI International, my employer, is a proud sponsor of this event.
