Description

Communicating information about public health needs and the evidence-based interventions to meet those challenges to a broad audience is a necessary skill for public health professionals. Do you have these skills?

For this live learning session, participants will complete the Communicating and Disseminating Evidence to Policymakers self-paced, online module, and then engage in a discussion and applied-learning activity with a subject matter expert, using bidirectional video.

In the online module and live learning session, participants will explore effective strategies for communicating evidence to decision-makers and acquire tools and resources to create and disseminate messages about evidence-based solutions on different platforms for diverse audiences. Also, included is guidance for writing and disseminating policy briefs.

 

 

The live learning session simulates an in-person training environment by having all participants on screen via video. This allows for an engaging and interactive learning environment where you get to know the instructor and the other participants. Participation via video is required. We use the Zoom platform, which is free and easy. You can join via a computer with a webcam, a laptop, tablet, or your smartphone. We’re here to help - we’ll provide instructions and our session support team is available to walk you through setup if you’re new to this!
