MPH student and over 50! I need to use social media and feed readers to build a virtual community and get policymakers to read about them.
I'm currently enrolled in a masters degree program in public health. For one course, I am learning about using online strategies to enhance effective community building and community organizing.
My cohorts and I are working with a Center for Assault Treatment Services. It is a non-profit organization that collects forensic evidence and information surrounding crimes against children. The organization is in Los Angeles' San Fernando Valley.
The goal of mine is to find other persons or organizations that are would find this organizations goal to be in synch with their own. While the dialogue and following buildings, I would be reading their comments and commentary in order to see if there is indeed a need for an intervention, service, product, etc.
The ultimate goal of this collaboration of persons or organizations is to attract the attention of key decision makers, policy makers, community principals, leaders, and the like.
Right now I'm following and posting here and there on Twitter. Any suggestions as to where else I might look?
