On January 15, 2020, the COMM HSP team convened an invitation-only research workshop called “Synthesizing Knowledge and Gaps in Research to Inform Communication Strategies in Building a Culture of Health”, held at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut.
The meeting objectives were:
Twenty-nine people attended the meeting, including researchers from academic and non-academic institutions, research staff, and RWJF program officers. Attendees presented work across four workshop topics related to the content of media and media organizations; strategic message design to shape a Culture of Health; understanding and engaging the public, community, and policymakers related to Culture of Health communication; and systems-level interventions to promote a Culture of Health. Speakers shared lessons learned and the collective group engaged in discussions to establish important gaps in existing research and what future research priorities should be.
The proceedings of the workshop — including the collective identification of priority topics for research attention — is available in this workshop summary report.
Our core team includes researchers at three institutions: Cornell University, Wesleyan University, and the University of Minnesota.
