NIEHS-funded Centers leverage social media platforms to promote research and activities, expand networks and partnerships, improve relationships with stakeholders, and foster community engagement.
Our Center has a focus on building capacity for effective on-line multi-directional communication.
We present on communication strategies at conferences with stakeholders, oversea a Science Communicators network at OSU, and train grad students.
Social media includes web-based and mobile technologies used to turn communication into interactive dialogue. (Wikipedia)
