As we are on the verge of Heart Month (and National Wear Red Day®) and their focus on heart health awareness, you have a great opportunity in the next 24 days to win a trip to the next Social Media Summit at Mayo Clinic, or a one-year membership in the Social Media Health Network for your organization.
Heart disease is the number one killer of men AND women in the United States. Consider the facts:
But it's not just a U.S. problem: the World Health Organization says "cardiovascular diseases are the number one cause of death globally; more people die from CVDs than from any other cause."
Mayo Clinic created our “Know Your Numbers” video parody of 867-5309/Jenny to help draw attention to the issue. As of this morning, the video is up to over 50,000 views on YouTube.
Through our Know Your Numbers contest you can help spread the word, and there are lots of individual prizes to win:
See the Contest Rules for details.
Your organization can win one of four one-year memberships in the Social Media Health Network by being the best as a team at helping to spread the "Know Your Numbers" message.
Start by creating your personal account on the contest site (you can even sign in with Facebook or Twitter)
Then use the built-in sharing tools to share your profile with your friends and followers via Facebook, Twitter or email, and encourage them to join, too.
To participate in the team contest, you can join a team for your workplace (or create one) here.
Here's your chance to show your stuff, and how you can creatively use social media tools to raise awareness of a massive global public health problem.
