Leveraging Social Networks: The Role of Community Influencers

Join us on Friday, April 16th to hear about a community-academic partnership using unique social media strategies with the Oneida Nation and Dane County Latinx and African American communities!

CCHE is pleased to host this session, Leveraging Social Networks: The Role of Community Influencers, that will highlight how community influencers use responsive, culturally congruent, targeted messages and pathways intentionally designed to impact community health and community assets. Our panel of colleagues from on- and off-campus will discuss how the partnership came together and will highlight community influencers’ role and key skills. They’ll also feature the particular methods each influencer has used, including corrective steps taken to refine and adjust practice mid-stream.

Register now for this Zoom webinar on April 16 from 12:30-2:00pm!
