Between 28 May and 4 June 2017 I guest edited the WePublicHealth Twitter feed for the second time. Read blog from guest editing this global Public Health blog the first time (January 2016).
This time round I used Twitter “big data” to source the best tweets and related materials from around the world on a series of Public Health topics, including physical activity, social determinants of health, antibiotic resistance, vaccination, smoking, mental health, and advocacy, introducing a new topic each day. I took the “big data” outputs and produced simple summaries on each topic. Find out more about the techniques I used in this blog on Immunization Week last month.
On 31 May I tweeted live from the Royal College of Physicians Edinburgh conference “Public Health in a Changing World” (hashtag #rcpePH17, programme here).
Read a short summary of each day’s activities below. From grassroots advocacy to global awareness campaigns this provides a whirlwind tour of recent Public Health work across the world.
