NHNA and Treatment Diaries partner to host Twitter chat Feb. 3

February 3rd, 2015 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

The Native Health News Alliance is partnering with Treatment Diaries for a Twitter chat in recognition of American Heart Month month during February. The American Indian Cancer Foundation will also be participating as a partner.  

This chat will explore how heart disease affects Native communities - we’ll share stories, challenges and highlights of covering this topic, whether that has been on a tribal, local or national level.

Please join the chat on Feb. 3 beginning at 7 p.m., by tweeting and using the #treatdiarieschat hashtag to share your insight on Native health in Indian County, whether it's through a blog, coverage or your work in the health care field as a provider or a communications pro. 

Participants are welcome to promote their media outlets and organizations through resources or connections. If there are others you'd think would benefit from the conversation, please share this invitation with them.
