One of the initiatives of the FPHTC Online Mentor Program is to “Broaden and/or enhance the understanding of the Florida Department of Health and its missions and programs.” Participants are not only encouraged to increase their awareness of the services that FDOH provides, but keep up with current events related to FDOH, as well.
And what better way of keeping “your finger on the pulse” than sitting in the newsroom? The Florida Department of Health’s Online Newsroom is a tool for the media to read press releases, video and audio interviews, stock photos and videos, and other important information.
Anyone can check out their website and stay abreast on the latest updates from FDOH. But if reading press releases isn’t your thing, you can always get your news from following their Twitter feed, Facebook page, or YouTube Channel.
After all, FDOH does rank third as most social media friendly health department. (And yes, I got that from reading a press release).
