After doing all this social media research, I feel like the APHA deserves a special shout out. I can’t believe its taken me this long to blog about the organization. I went to the APHA conference in San Francisco a few years ago, and have been a huge fan ever since. Its a non profit that works to connect public health professionals in the aim of improving health outcomes all over the world. Below is their simply and awesome Mission and Vision (below).
Our Mission- Improve the health of the public and achieve equity in health status.
Our Vision- Create the healthiest nation in one generation.
There are two major features on their website that really stick out. On their homepage are a list of webinars that anyone can attend. One particularly interesting one is found here. You can even view past webinars. Here is one that addressed the Flint Water Crisis. You can find out more about the APHA here. The second feature that I thought was great was their Public Health Newswire. It collects all the latest health related news.
