In social media terms a hashtag is a word or phrase preceded by the pound or hash symbol (#). Social media sites like Twitter sort and catalog all the content linked to a specific hashtag which is then visible through the hashtag feed. Now, anyone interested in the topic can easily access, browse through the information, and contribute to the ongoing discussion.
Currently, ASHA supports four Networking Community themes. Each theme represents a segment of the school health profession, such as teachers, nurses, and school health coordinators; or a particular aspect of school health like research, or programs and services. We unveiled new hashtags for each community, they are:
- Administration, Coordination & Leadership (#ashaLead)
- Programs & Services (#ashaPrograms)
- Research & Emerging Issues (#ashaResearch)
- Teaching & Learning (#ashaTeach)
We invite you to use these hashtags on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and other social media sites as a way to join the conversation.
