Unit 8: Discussion – Social Media Influencers

HC 491 Week 8 Discussion Assignment Help

Unit 8: Discussion – Social Media Influencers

.

Introduction

You are a volunteer coordinator at a local healthcare related nonprofit which focuses on healthy lifestyles. You are looking to create a social media team of influencers for a grassroot initiative related to increasing step count in order to try to decrease the threat of child hood obesity in your community. You have sent out an invitation on a social media platform form and are looking to recruit young mothers to become part of your social media influencer team. The thought in recruiting young mothers is that they will learn the importance of daily activity and that this will help influence their own behavior with their small children.

You are asked to create the memo for discussion at your first meeting highlighting some of the ways the mothers can help your initiative.
