The Power of Social Media in Child Life Programming


The Child Life Council Conference is just a week away and I couldn’t be more excited! I am looking forward to networking, seeing new and old friends and presenting with two colleagues on a trending topic, The Power of Social Media in Child Life Programming.

We will cover the facts on social media, the benefits for use and ways to implement it. As a panel presentation the three of us will discuss how we use it in our different settings; a children’s hospital, global child life, private practice, blogging, technology support and work in the community.

Be sure to sign up and join us on Friday, May 22, 2015 at 2:15pm.
