Upcoming Events

The following is a listing of events that might be of interest to those in Public Health.

Here’s to Your Heart! Twitter Chat @ Online
Feb 3 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Join the MaineHealth Learning Resource Center on Twitter with Dr. Andrew Corsello from MaineHealth Cardiology, Dr. Jeffrey Aalberg from Maine Medical Partners Family Medicine, and nutritionist Kris Lindsey from Hannaford as they chat about Healthy Living with Heart Disease, in honor of American Heart Health Month.

Wondering what a Twitter Chat is? Twitter Chats are a powerful way to share valuable information in real time, orchestrated by hashtags (#). We know, it sounds like something only teens do, but people anywhere can participate and learn from health leaders. And on top of learning valuable information, the participants can (and will) share the information they have learned with their followers. It’s a ripple effect! Or maybe we should say it’s a Twitter effect!

Please join our first Twitter Chat to learn about how to live well with heart disease from Maine experts on February 3rd. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #LRCHeart! Follow us: @MaineHealthLRC1.

Biking and Walking Issues at the Maine State Legislature (Call Option #2)
Feb 18 @ 8:00 am – 9:00 am

On this call, BCM Advocacy Staff Jim Tasse and Abby King will provide an overview of the statewide legislative priorities for bicyclists and pedestrians this year. Staff will summarize BCM’s efforts to pass “An Act to Improve Safety and Clarify Responsibilities of Pedestrians and Bicyclists” and to include funding for bike/ped infrastructure in this year’s transportation bond. We will review the role your state legislators can take in your community work and their role at the State House; how to engage your legislator in state and local issues; and how you can help win grassroots support for statewide bike/ped campaigns in 2015.
