About Us

Established in 2016, The Promoting Research in Social Media and Health Symposium (PRISM Health Symposium) is of the few existing conference dedicated to interdisciplinary experts engaged in social media and health research. It brings together researchers, industry partners, patients, advocates, and others to showcase their work. Now on its fifth year, PRISM hosts innovative, interactive conference sessions that bridge the gap among diverse research disciplines. Join us at PRISM to advance this field of work!

One of the speakers could potentially be a valuable community-based research partner for us

PRISM Attendee, 2016

PRISM encourages trainees, junior faculty, and professionals underrepresented in medicine (UIM) to attend. In 2016 and 2017, PRISM attracted more than 60 attendees. One-third of these attendees were early in their careers and one-third of these trainees were UIM.  

I have spoken with XYZ and keeping some ideas there in the back of my mind. I recently invited XYZ to speak, and hope to have ongoing work. I am currently starting a project on NLP that was inspired by a talk in 2016
