Times are changin’ and so are we. Corey and I have been extremely fortunate to contribute to the dynamo social media successes at Toronto Public Health and Ottawa Public Health. A new bend in both our rivers is taking us in different directions.
Corey is now a Strategic Initiatives Officer at Ottawa Fire Services and will be doing a variety of tasks from project work to strategic communications to report writing.
I am now a Digital Communications Senior Consultant at Argyle Communications. My first foray into something other than non-profit and government! Nervous and very excited.
Our new paths are still saturated with social media and with the enthusiasm for engagement, creativity and communications, that brought us into health communications. While we both will still be working in communications, the health component of our expertise will be diversified (still present!) with new areas of content, new ways of doing communications and new applications of PR tools.
You can’t shake the health out of us, and we will still be drawing on our extensive knowledge of social media and public health communications for the blog. The content of the blog will evolve as we evolve in our new roles. What does that look like? We’re not sure yet, but we do want to hear from you. In time, we hope our new experiences and skills will help you infuse your social media and public health efforts with a diversified set of tools and tips that we gain as insiders-turned-outsiders.
