How to Submit Your Blog Post for Consideration

  • If you would like to submit an idea for a post or have any questions, please contact us at media@unitedhealthassoc.com. New contributors may also wish to submit a brief abstract or outline of their ideas before submitting a completed post to aid in our decision-making process.
  • Please send all blog posts to United Health Association at media@unitedhealthassoc.com.
  • We ask that new contributors submit a short bio (no more than 100 words) that includes your Twitter handle, blog URL, or any other relevant links.
  • New contributors should also submit a headshot, which will be associated with your author profile. The image must be at least 6” x 6” with a resolution of at least 72 dpi.

Image Requirements

  • Blog posts that include a thematically related cover image are more likely to grab reader attention, so please submit a “cover” image with your post (this can be a photo, chart, screenshot, or a piece of theme art that represents the topic in a compelling way).
  • Images must be a minimum of 700 x 315 pixels, with a resolution of at least 72 dpi.

  • Any video submitted with your post must be in one of the following formats: .3GP, .AVI, .DV, h.264, .MPEG2, .MPEG4, QuickTime, .WMV.
  • The maximum upload size is 100 MB, which is approximately 3 to 4 minutes in length.
  • There are several ways to send videos to UHA:

Youtube

  • Go to YouTube.com and click the “sign in” button. If you have a Google account (i.e., Gmail), sign in with your Google credentials. If you don’t have a free Google account, you will need to create one, using your email address.
  • Upon signing in for the first time, you may be prompted to “start a channel,” which is the place where all your Youtube uploads will live.
