Webinar: Swipe Right: Including Dating Apps in Partner Services

August 22 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Most individuals are online and own smart phones. Not surprisingly, many are meeting sex partners via dating websites and apps. As a result, individuals may only know their sexual partner by their profile name or email address and as such, the internet or other digital mediums become essential to finding and notifying a partner of exposure to STIs, including HIV. In light of this, public health professionals must also learn how to navigate these tech platforms.

After attending this webinar, which is hosted by Health Care Education & Training (HCET) attendees will be able to:

  1. Explain how health department staff can incorporate technology into partner services.
  2. Identify strategies for using technology for partner services, including partner notification and prevention messaging.
  3. Describe STI prevention strategies that are already available through phone apps.
