Hi Kate,

Thank you for reaching out! We no longer keep an active FB account; however, we do maintain a blog for our students, so we could share the information there. Could you send me the information we can post?

Hello Joe,

I manage a Nutrition Study at Fred Hutch under UW Faculty Dr. Marian Neuhouser. We are recruiting healthy volunteers age 18-50 to participate in our investigation of how eating patterns affect health and appetite. The organizer of Dawg Daze, Martha Tran suggested that I contact you to see if you would be willing to share information about our study on the School of Public Health Facebook page. Please let me know if this is something you could help with and I can send you our approved copy/image for FB promotions.

Hi Martha,

That’s a great idea. We’ve had a lot of luck posting flyers at the school of Public Health, so I think that would be a great idea.

Do you happen to have contact information for the person who managers their FB account?

Done! I also recommend you reach out to School of Public Health and see if they would be willing to share on social media as well. Good luck,
