Directions: Students are required to identify 3 examples of health, public health, health promotion, and wellness on a social media site of their choosing. Students are required to identify 2 examples of a positive and effective use of social media in the health, health promotion, public health, and/or wellness domain. One example must be from a qualified health source (ie CDC, Kaiser Family Foundation, Mayo Clinic). The other social media source is the choice of the student. One example must be a negative use of social media focused on health, health promotion, public health and/or wellness.

Students must concisely describe the social media activity, campaign, event or program, or intervention being addressed in the social media post. Clearly identify the purpose of the social media activity and the health concern it is attempting to address. Provide a description of the program/activity/event/ or program. This can be something that was only on the social media platform or a campaign that existed in-person or on the internet but was promoted and dependent on social media. An example is an organizations use of social media to draw awareness to some disease or health problem, offer an intervention, or to educate the public.
