Our event is now called Sweets and Tweets. More about this social media event series here.
Our first event, to be held at the ultra cool Baked & Wired in Georgetown, will feature HHS social media guy Andrew Wilson, who will talk about the new HHS Center for New Media as well as using social media in a crisis.
Wilson was involved with the creation of the HHS/FDA /CDC social media page. This is a resource created in four days to educate consumers and enable them to spread the word about the peanut butter product recall related to salmonella.
No April Fool's
