Public health professionals often construct or contribute to written materials about health topics, which are intended for a broad audience. This webinar explains concrete strategies for writing to the public, based in the building BRIDGES approach.

Drawing from both classical rhetoric and the New Literacy Studies, this webinar teaches ways to communicate effectively with the public. Using real-world examples, you’ll learn skills to break down various forms of communication, from pamphlets to websites. You’ll have a chance to explore your own assumptions about your audiences and see how empathy can enhance your writing. You’ll also learn a strategic way to maintain health literacy principles while getting your point across in oral, digital, and multimodal communications.

Participants will learn how to:

  1. Describe the rhetorical triangle and its components, and how it can be used to analyze communication
  2. Identify assumptions you have about your audience and how these influence your writing
  3. Construct an empathy map to help focus your writing
