Upcoming Panel at D&I Conference
A few members of our team will be speaking at the 9th Annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation of Health in Washington, D.C. next week. Our panel is titled “Applying Network Science and Visualization Mapping for Improved Digital Public Health Communication“. Here is the abstract:
Health communication is evolving with advancing digital modalities. Media Cloud, a joint project of the Harvard Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society and the MIT Center for Civic Media, is an open platform allowing researchers to conceptualize online media as a networked public sphere and analyze and test new communication theories over large data sets. In this discussion-based session, we explore three public health media case studies and consider networked online visualization approaches. Results suggest the general public is not merely a target audience for broadcast information, but rather a strong contributing player in shaping online health communication narratives.
