CDC 2013 recap

By Maria Martin

The three days at the CDC Conference was a whirlwind of mid-week fun. The team was there to live-tweet CDC conference happenings + their projects around First Nations health and social media promotion. Many attendees recognized and were aware of our projects and campaigns. We did live tweeting & video interviews throughout the conference, so stay tuned for our vlog post highlighting the event. We asked people what community health meant to them & what community health looked like in First Nations communities. We also interviewed Dr. Evan Adams who explained the connection between community health and the new First Nations Health Authority. The wellness model takes a mind, body, spirit approach.

It was also interesting to see how social media bridged First Nations rural communities in BC via FB, twitter, or texting. Some RNs use FB to communicate with their clients and to do some health promotions. One project uses texting as a tool to connect with HIV patients and monitor their progress. They can text their health care providers about their medications, appointments or if they need some social support. I hope the First Nations Health Authority will utilize social media for primary care & health promotions because youths are becoming more tech savvy so health care providers need to follow the trend and connect in new ways.

I would like to thank CDC for inviting Hello Cool World to the event. Do not forget to like us on FB & follow us on twitter. For our portfolio, please click here. If anyone was following us on twitter during the conference, give us some feedback & thoughts in the comments below.

Thanks & stay cool.
