Talking Social Media and Public Health

I was interviewed a few weeks back by Stephen Linder, interim director of the Institute for Health Policy at the University of Texas School of Public Health, and Richard Austin, senior communication specialist for the Institute. They asked lots of probing questions about social media successes and were particularly curious about the role of public health schools in moving toward this new world. The interview is up as a podcast, which you can listen to below. Thanks to Steve and Rick for a great conversation. Check out the Research into Action Web site to learn more about the Institute’s translation initiative and to hear other conversations, including interviews with Bill Novelli of Porter/Novelli and Harvey Fineberg, president of the Institute of Medicine.

    Great stuff here – so glad I was able to come across this post thanks to my buddy John Haydon! My background is in public and community health and I’ve been working to bridge the worlds of innovation and new media to the field.

    Finding this blog most definitely made my day – have a lot of great respect and friends over at RWJF and great to see you doing this great work with Open Road! Would love to connect more and soon Larry!

    Thank you for this podcast. I’ve made a few points as ‘lessons learnt’ into a post that is relevant to what i’ve been talking about. I need help to be able to formulate my PhD research question…hopefully i’ll get help. I’m putting it out there now as you advised.
