Collaborative Meeting_edited.jpg
26 Aug, 16:00 – 17:00

To reach the RDSA vision of readily accessible care and support for those affected or at risk of rare and congenital disorders, we believe we not only need to unite with support groups but to work together as a team. 

In the last of our three-part webinar series, we have partnered with Novartis to assist our nascent and budding support groups grow into fully fledged, independent organisations.

Join us on Thursday 26 August at 4pm, as Megan Hunter talks with Kelly du Plessis about how to increase awareness and visibility across social media; encourage and assist patients in getting the support they need; engagement platform where groups can learn from patients and share information; external awareness; allocating capacity; and why you should bother with social media.

Megan Hunter
Owner & Director, Social-Lite Digital

Megan is a face that many of our community will recognise, and she is also the Social Media Manager of Rare Diseases SA and all our associated accounts.

Her journey into social media management came from seeing the personal growth across her platforms, and realising the need to keep up with the current trends and algorithms.

Megan started her own social media business over 3 years ago, and is constantly striving to learn more through courses, online training and job-shadowing others in the business.  She runs the social media accounts for small businesses alongside RDSA, The Rare Bear Project and her own personal blog, Flowercrowns and Treatments.

Megan has garnered first-hand experience on what it means to run different social media platforms for an NPO and the relevant support groups, and is looking forward to sharing this knowledge with others in the community.
