Using Technology to Share Public Health Information

April 27th, 2020

This practice depends on having a staff member with the technical know-how to set themselves up at home with a webcam, sound and a video link for guests. Access to partner resources and guest speakers is made possible by having the SSA Health Director on a Leadership Planning Community table alongside local government, school districts, the Division of Family Practice, and media. This provides access to Access to resources in the form of guest speakers, information, and promotion of the live stream sessions.

Sessions are open to everyone, which contributes to the shared experience of pandemic response which in turn helps us to build community. Participants are able to interact in real time with the presenters, and have their questions answered, and concerns addressed. Sessions are archived for transparency and future viewing, available to all: https://www.facebook.com/pg/stolonation/videos/?ref=page_internal

Relationship-building with local agencies, service providers, and wellness partners is always a best practice – and for dealing with a crisis, these established partnerships makes response easier and more effective. In this instance, the Leadership Planning Community table provides a beneficial and trusted source of information and resources.
