Expanding Your Health Advocacy: Two Webinar Events To Attend!

This month we’re focusing on expanding our advocacy and learning from each other – so, right in line with that are two upcoming webinar events we’ve planned featuring two unique Health Activists who have awesome experiences to share and some tips to offer us all on the idea of going beyond and intensifying our activism by diversifying our efforts.

First up we will get the inside scoop on the Twitter Chat phenomenon and talk about how to use it to inspire our advocacy overall. During this 30 minute webinar chat, we will meet Diabetes Social Media Advocacy (#DSMA) Chat creator Cherise Shockley! We’ll discuss what inspired Cherise to create the chat and what helped to make it so successful and popular amongst online community members. We’ll also hear about how Cherise uses that chat as a jumping-off point to inspire advocacy in others and see how the chat has inspired conversation in and out of the Twitosphere. Most importantly we’ll come up with a list of ways for you to take what you tweet and create better, more effective advocacy!

Join us for this webinar with Cherise on Monday, May 16th at 7pm EST!

Next we will get into the idea of taking your online activism offline! During our second 30 minute webinar chat, we will meet Jen Pettit, Sjogren’s Syndrome Activist, blogger at “UII – Understanding Invisible Illness,” and in-person-advocacy extraordinaire. As online Health Activists, our efforts center on utilizing the web for our outreach. Let’s see how to take it to the next level and get up close and personal with our work.  Jen is no stranger to getting face-to-face with her advocacy and has some great tips for starting your own organized event or simply educating people in-person about your condition. In this webinar we’ll discuss how to get started, the differences between online and offline awareness, what you need to run your own event, and key points to remember when meeting to discuss your mission IRL (in real life).

Join us for this webinar with Jen on Thursday, May 26th at 7pm EST!
