« Seminar: The Growth of New Media in Health Communication and Marketing | Main | Social Media and Public Health Emergencies: Salmonella and Peanuts »



My firm does a substantial amount of government sponsored social marketing. We work in the areas of teen tobacco prevention, adult cessation, problem gambling and childhood obesity. Because we have a budget crisis, activities we KNOW work are under scrutiny and face perhaps total elimination. These programs have become political footballs. Perhaps the best stimulus for the economy would be a social marketing campaign that attempted to calm everyone down. There's no counter voice to the doomsdayers in DC.
