Data Analysis: California and Texas Public Health Initiatives

I am a health communication researcher, primarily in the areas of social media and awareness for veterans and underrepresented populations. During a graduate class this semester, the students decided to research how two states provided outreach for their citizens through Twitter.

This is definitely a high impact practice for students. I like to integrate research in each course that I teach - online and offline!
