It was an honour to have the opportunity to work with Twitter Canada to host an in-person event at their headquarters in Toronto for our #ItDoesntHaveToHurt Twitter party on September 15, 2016. Thanks to special funding from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, we were able to bring together scientists, researchers, digital influencers, parents, and other stakeholders and supporters for this special event. We were excited to pilot use of the Twitter proprietary Q&A video app for health communication, allowing us to answer parents' tweeted questions live via video. Here are just a few highlights! Huge thanks to our incredible partner in #ItDoesntHaveToHurt, Erica Ehm's YummyMummyClub.ca for helping make this event a reality.

And it all started with the media promotion in the week leading up to the Twitter Party and the travel across the country to the Twitter Canada HQ in Toronto.
