Health communication can be challenging. This Playbook will make it easier. When you need to communicate with the public about environmental health, you may be dealing with tight deadlines, complex topics, and distracted or confused audiences. So when you spend the time and resources to develop a new product — whether it’s a website for consumers (i.e., non-scientific audiences) or a presentation for policymakers — you want to know it will work. You want to feel confident your material will:

  • Resonate with the right audience
  • Provide the right information
  • Be easy to understand
