While all of us communicate on a daily basis, in the sphere of public health, it is sometimes difficult to get our message across, especially when we are looking for behavior change. Social Marketing, the practice of using marketing fundamentals for social good rather than commercial profit, has been researched since the 1970’s. In the age of digital communications, best practice models must adapt for a changing landscape. Stronger, more persuasive communication is needed at all levels for best approaches to our most compelling problems.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss different channels of communication for dissemination for persuasion messages in public health.
