Wednesday, May 16, 2018: 10:00 AM-11:30 AM

Social media is powerful, direct, and immediate—and if you aren’t already involved, you’re missing a crucial opportunity to tell the story of your programs and consumers and help destigmatize homelessness. This presentation will serve as a “how-to” primer for entities in the homeless health care field to build or improve their institution’s communications through social media storytelling. Learn how to create and incorporate shareable media, multimedia consumer stories, and more in your social media to better reach a broader community for advocacy, development, and awareness
