Course Description

In this course we will examine the diverse uses of social media in the current health and nutrition field and develop a framework for students to apply for future social media usage in professional endeavors. Attention will be paid to the critical analysis of the appropriateness, potential target populations, communication and health behavior strategies, the risks and benefits, and the overall intended outcomes and reach of social media communication.
