This summer, the Tufts School of Medicine will be facilitating its fifth Institute on Digital Strategies for Health Communication. The week-long course aims to educate participants about connecting with patients through digital technology, including the web, social media, and mobile apps.
Tufts faculty and guest lecturers will help students define cutting-edge tech strategies, evaluate relevant case studies, and understand materials from Consumer Reports, ABC Health News, and other sources. In the video below, you’ll hear from Robyn Alie, from the public health department at the Massachusetts Medical Society (MMS), and Frank Fortin, chief digital strategist and communications director for the MMS.
Students at the summer institute will work on a case study of MMS’s digital influence, and Alie and Fortin are excited to see what the Tufts community has to say. Check out the video below for more information:
