Last Thursday evening I was honored to be a guest participant of the #hchlitss Twitter chat. The hashtag stands for Health Communications, Health Literacy and Social Sciences and was created by Kathleen Hoffman and RV Rikard (who both live here in North Carolina!).
In being invited to the event, I thought about some relevant topics to highlight in the hour – I landed on sustainability in public health initiatives, digital health literacy and being smart in health communications with specific communities (i.e. communities of color). The conversation quickly ramped up a few minutes into the Twitter chat with great people jumping in with thoughts, including Myrna Morales and Kate Ellington, two of the realest people I know around the health literacy discussion and cultural competency.
