Disability in Practice Webinar: Peer Support

Tuesday, October 25, 2011
2 pm ET - 3 pm ET
Location: online

Many public health, health promotion and human services programs use elements of peer support as a way of connecting people with shared experiences and program goals.  For example, online health communities and social networks can help connect people with similar health conditions and can play a supporting role in navigating the health care system. This webinar will provide examples of public health programs that have used peer support as a tool for involving and motivating participants and impacting public health outcomes.  Panel members will share specific examples from their programs, and will participate in a question and answer session on this issue.
