Professional Development Event: Self-Promotion

Learn how to present yourself as a health promotion professional. This event will focus on how to use LinkedIn to network and promote yourself. 

In November we had a unique community of practice on “How to Promote Yourself?” as a health promotion practitioner. Specifically, how to network and market yourself on LinkedIn. We had two marketing specialists guest speakers who spoke about do’s and don’ts and a professional photographer who took headshots of each of our attendants.
