Last year we explored what it takes to make progress on complex public health issues and generate sustainable social change. As a follow-up this year, we will share the results of our current research focused on public messaging aimed at understanding how best to engage different segments of the population in conversations about what really matters to their life and health. Also featured will be an interactive session with attendees, where we will provide resources that can be used to help incorporate the research insights and language into current work.
