Your Questions From the White House: 30 Years of AIDS Video Chat
By Robin Joseph
September 13, 2011
Over the summer, AIDS.gov collaborated with the White House to host a live video chat to commemorate 30 years of AIDS in the United States. This was a great listening and engaging opportunity for us to learn more about the HIV and AIDS information that our audiences want, and to help plan our future communication activities.
Before and during the event, we reached out to you, our followers, to see what information you hoped to gain from this event. It was interesting to learn what questions you had, so we would like to take this opportunity to share what AIDS.gov discovered in the process of reviewing questions submitted.
We collected approximately 300 questions total via the White House webpage in the days leading up to the event, as well as questions received live via Facebook during the chat. You submitted the majority of questions (approximately 74%) in advance through the White House webpage.
We've included a chart showing the various areas that your questions touched upon. The top three categories of questions you submitted related to research, fiscal, and personal inquiries.
Thank you for your thoughtful questions. From this particular open new media dialogue, we learned a lot about the HIV topics that you want to know more about in the limited time provided, speakers addressed as many of them as possible. We realize that there are still more to address and will use these questions to help shape our future blog posts, webinars, and website content.
