#NatCon16 is the Annual Conference of the National Council on Behavioral Health. For the second time, the conference will include invited Social Media Ambassadors to help share the story of #NatCon16 far and wide. I’m joined on the podcast by Communications team members Hannah Coen and Allie Siemianowski of the National Council on Behavioral Health to talk about why they developed the social media ambassador program and what they hope to achieve. Listen to our conversation originally recorded via Blab or drop in at the time stamps below.
