Conference Session Highlight

WEDNESDAY, JULY 17 • 10:30AM - 12:00PM
Pushing Public Health Policy in Partisan Times
How do partisan politics impact the passage and/or implementation of important public health policy? How does a divided government affect the messaging landscape now that the general public seems to disbelieve media outlets that don't espouse their political views? What do public health practitioners need to consider as they seek to frame and advance public health policy? This mini-plenary session will address these issues and more!

Lori Dorfman , Director, Berkeley Media Studies Group
Carter Headrick , Director of State and Local Obesity Policy, American Heart Association
Margo Wootan , Vice President for Nutrition , Center for Science in the Public Interest
