Digital Opinion Leader (DOL) is an E-influencer who is a HCP or someone who influences public health, public health policies, and public health implementation. DOLs, in essence, are Key Opinion Leaders (KOL) on a digital platform. DOLs may be practicing or non-practicing HCPs; some may no longer practice but are currently active health journalists.
