Medium as Message: Effectively Delivering Covid-19 Public Health

Information to Contained Faith-Based Communities

Vital Statistics Consulting & The Unbiased Science Podcast are pleased to present Medium as Message: Delivering Covid-19 Public Health Information to Contained Communities. In this 90-minute conversation and Q&A, VSC and guests will discuss strategies for translating public health messages related to Covid-19 prevention, detection, and treatment in a manner culturally sensitive to faith-based communities such as Ultra-Orthodox Jewish, Christian, and Muslim communities; discussion will focus on what, how, and who should provide this information. This conversation is the first in a series that will focus on methods for translating public health imperatives into action.

Discussion Topics

  • Key elements of an effective public health prevention campaign
  • Messages that are likely to resonate with contained faith-based organizations
  • Recommendations for localities, providers, and community organizations on delivering effective health-related messages and communication
  • Key takeaways that can be generalized to inform public health outreach to a variety of populations
  • Targeted scientific communication strategies
  • Plus, a live Q&A session with panelists!
