Best of #HealthPolicyValentines 2017

I often share how social media can develop a sense of community. That causes can be brought together through a hashtag or like minded individuals can tackle problems via a twitter chat.  This is a good example of a community coming together on twitter to share concerns and also have a little fun.

#HealthPolicyValentine was formed to “send love” to their favorite health policy change.  If I am recalling correctly, it was started last year by Emma Sandoe on twitter. She got the ball rolling again this year…

I am sure people would love to send Martin Shkreli some “love”. He was the person responsible for the now infamous price hike of the EpiPen. With the incoming Trump administration there was a lot of anxiety about the Affordable Care Act…

But also there was hope and solutions proposed…

 

The creativity was also wonderful…

 

This hashtag not only brings out some fun things but creates an ongoing dialogue. It also creates a running list of people who are knowledgeable and passionate about healthcare policy. I collected more of my favorites in the below Storify. Please enjoy the laughter but also the sense of community and passion around improving healthcare policy…
