HE 764 - Social Media for Health and Nonprofit Organizations

Students will acquire beginning competency in selecting and using social media to accomplish social marketing or health communication objectives.

We will discuss the evidence supporting behavior change effectiveness as well as the ethics of using these media. After social media “bootcamp” and “basic training,” students will be deployed to help a non-profit ‘client’ create and implement a social media strategy.
