March (Learning) Madness

Lesson 2: Get Social 

Let's face it: people love social media! It's a challenge for health educators, but also an opportunity to get food safety messages to people where they are. Whether you're an expert or a novice, these presentations from the Consumer Food Safety Education Conference about online tools and social media strategies will help you either get started or improve your practice:
Save the Date: April 7th - World Health Day

The Pan American Health Organization/World Health Organization (PAHO/WHO) and the United Nations Foundation will host a #FoodSafety+Social Good webcast, with Q&A via Twitter and Facebook (using the hashtags: #FoodSafety #SocialGood). 


WHAT: #SafeFood +Social Good

WHEN: Tuesday, April 7 

  • English: 10:00am - 10:45am 
  • Spanish: 11:15am - 12:00pm

We need your stories for the World Health Organization's World Health Day on April 7th! 
Together we can demonstrate the impact health and food safety educators are having on the health of families!  We'll use your stories for a webpage and social media campaign demonstrating how people empower others to take simple actions that can reduce risk of food poisoning!

  • Your 1-3 paragraph story about a specific food safety education activity
