Using social media to improve your health and your future

2013-08-14 17.36.15 - Josh-1Speaker: Melissa Cockroft and Em Sreymom
Topic:  Using social media to improve your health and your future

Summary:

Understanding clearly about sexual and reproductive health is just as important for your future as getting a good education and finding a good job. In Cambodia many people are shy to talk about and it can be difficult to find accurate information on sexual and reproductive health, particularly if you are a young person.

Social media might seem like a strange place to promote and find information about sexual and reproductive health, but if it works for other kinds of information, why not health information too?!

This interactive session in English and Khmer will:

-show you how we use social media such as Facebook to find and promote information about sexual and reproductive health,

-give you the opportunity to provide feedback and ideas about how we can improve our social media platform currently being used to promote sexual and reproductive health among youth,

-allow you to ask as many questions as you like about sexual and reproductive health to our presenters as well as though a “live” call- in to an expert,

-Plus other surprises!
