Research Gaps and Opportunities for Health and Science Communication
NIH is conducting planning activities to inform a potential Common Fund research program to support the development, assessment, and implementation of novel approaches to address health and science communication in a changing sociocultural landscape. As part of these planning activities, NIH will host a public workshop on May 16, from 1:00 – 4:00pm ET. This workshop will bring together key representatives from multiple sectors with an interest in and that are influenced by health and science communication research to identify research opportunities and gaps that, if addressed, would lead to more effective communication towards promoting healthy behaviors. “Health and science communication research,” for the purposes of this meeting, includes research related to equitable access to, uptake of, and meaningful use of evidence-based health information; health and science literacy; the spread and impact of health-related misinformation; and the changing information ecosystem characterized by social media and mistrust. This workshop will include panel discussions with invited experts.

Registered attendees can submit questions or comments for possible inclusion in the workshop, at the discretion of the panel moderators. Please send questions or comments to CFHealthCommResearch@nih.gov with the subject line “Health Communication Workshop” by May 9, 2022.

May 16, 2022 01:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
