Event Details

The National Institutes of Health is hosting a summit to explore how digital is being used by government agencies, clinicians, scientists, patients, and the public to communicate information on health and science. 

As health information becomes increasingly accessible, it’s important to take a look at how these resources are communicated and shared with the public, how and where clinicians and scientists are discussing important health topics in the digital sphere, and the challenges health communicators face with an ever-evolving digital landscape. The summit is designed to encourage discussion, so come prepared to ask questions!

Agenda:

The morning will focus on digital health and the public. The afternoon will focus on how researchers and health professionals are using digital tools in their professional lives. There will be multiple opportunities throughout the day for the audience to ask questions of the various speakers.

Panel topics will include:

Morning Session
Panel 1 The patient and caregiver perspective: Managing health conditions using digital tools and social media.

Panel 2 Reaching patients and the public where they are: Sharing high quality, evidence-based information with the public on social media, blogs, and mobile apps.

Afternoon Session
Panel 3 The health professional perspective: Using social media to get and share information and interact with other professionals and patients.

Panel 4 The scientist's perspective: Using digital and social media to collaborate, share ideas, and communicate research to the public.

Who Should Attend:

  • This event is open to the public.
  • Health communications professionals, clinicians, and researchers interested in digital health are encouraged to attend.
