Learn how to get your research into mainstream media
Participants heard from experts in media and population health research about how to get their work published in the mainstream media. Imparted skills will help address a gap in media coverage — that most reported health stories deal with health care while critical issues such as population and public health and social determinants of health are less frequently covered and not as well understood.
