What should governments be thinking about when it comes to communicating effectively to protect public health during a large-scale emergency?

That’s the question that a group of experts from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health’s Emergency Preparedness Research, Evaluation & Practice (EPREP) Program sought to answer in a study published in mid-November.

The team interviewed 27 individuals representing governments from 19 countries—all people with experience dealing with large-scale emergencies. Based on the interviews, the researchers identified nine crucial principles for effective communication, including providing information in a timely manner, being transparent about what’s known and what’s not known, coordinating messaging across local, state, and national agencies, and being proactive. #NPHW

The landscape of public health is always changing and evolving with new tools and innovations to make it easier to promote well-being. ASPPH members at UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health are on the frontlines of these innovations for weight-loss management apps. Researchers are finding that making a few key changes to these apps can promote healthy weight loss.

They have found that by adding a ‘human touch’ to this tech, such as personalized goals and feedback and the ability to track eating, physical activity, and weight consistently, users often find more success in their weight loss journey. #NPHW
