Virtual Health Promotion

An essay written by Richard Crespo reminded me of where I would like to go with community health education.   After some great examples of collaborative virtual projects, Crespo wrote:

What intrigues me about online communities is that the characteristics of community participation and ownership they exemplify are also fundamental to community health. Community health practioners, however, have fallen behind in applying these principles in the virtual world. In a recent report, an expert panel convened by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommended that public health officials should develop the idea of virtual community health promotion (7).
