Theresa recently returned to MSU after working with the Americas Regional Office of the World Health Organization where she had first-hand exposure to the usefulness of social media in responding to the two most serious emergencies in the history of the organization. Tracing the evolution of the use of social media for emergencies, such as Pandemic H1N1 (swine flu) and the Haitian earthquake, she discusses its potential to promote healthy people, communities, environments and economies. We have much to learn from social media natives not just about technology, but the collaborative behavior required for success in the 21st century. About TEDx, x = independently organized event: In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations) http://www.tedxlansing.com/ @TEDcLansing http://lcc/edu/tv/ @LCCTVTheLink
