presents “Improving Grassroots Policy Support Through Better Public Health Message Framing” at its next Translational Science Seminar Series webinar from noon to 1 p.m. on March 18.
In this seminar, Jessica Myrick, associate professor of film-video and media studies, will address how the language and images used to describe COVID-19 in the media can shape emotional and cognitive responses to the condition as well as subsequent policy support. This talk will draw on interdisciplinary approaches spanning health behavior, media studies, political science and social psychology.
The Translational Science Seminar Series: Bench to Bedside and Beyond encourages an engaged translational science workforce through panel discussions and practical application information.
