Webinar: Better Together: Public-Private Partnership Lessons from the Hemophilia Community
Tuesday, June 19, 3 p.m. ET The idea of public-private partnerships is a celebrated idea in the social marketing community. The reality of building and maintaining them, however, is often far more complicated and sometimes elusive to campaign planners. In SMANAs first exclusive webinar for members, Darcy Sawatzki and Amanda Mulally from KYNE will share their top five lessons learned from building public-private partnerships, using a recent experience with the hemophilia community as a case study. Join this webinar to learn how to build effective partnerships into your next social marketing initiative. Register here (https://goo.gl/forms/xGur3ossjjcr9Aw12). Not a SMANA member?
