National health awareness campaigns
Throughout the year there are many health awareness campaigns which run for a day, week or month and all for good causes.
Below are a list of some of those that talkhealth supports. We are very aware that there are many that we have missed out, but we have tried to focus on those health conditions and topics that we cover within our individual health hubs. If there is a particular one that you would like us to support please do get in touch directly with us here.
There are a number of ways in which we support awareness campaigns:
- a blog post by talkhealth
- social media - twitter, pinterest and facebook
- banners across relevent health pages
- a specific twitter chat under our hashtag #talkhealth
- newsletter article to members
