APHA: Building Understanding of Environmental Health

The FrameWorks Institute has recently completed a multi-year, multi-method inquiry into how the American public thinks and talks about environmental health. Sponsored by APHA and generously funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, this research reveals effective strategies for talking with the public about environmental health work and the impacts of our environments on public health. APHA recently released a new set of communications tools and resources based on these findings. To introduce the findings’ framing strategies, APHA is hosting a three-part webinar series this spring, conducted by the FrameWorks Institute.

Each of these interactive webinars will focus on a different set of framing resources and strategies. Participants will learn about the research base that supports these tools and come away with fresh tips and tools they can build into their communications right away.
