On August 1, as a kick-off to National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM), NACCHO hosted Talking About Vaccines: Lessons Learned from CDC Research with Parents and Healthcare Professionals.
During this webinar, Allison Fisher (CDC/NCIRD) and Elizabeth Ryan (Northrop Grumman-TEKsystems Contractor, CDC/NCIRD) presented key findings from CDC’s communication research with pregnant women, parents of young children, adolescents, and healthcare professionals. Their presentation focused on how the research findings have been translated into key principles for communicating with each of these audiences. Ms. Fisher and Ms. Ryan shared information about available CDC communication resources to assist local health departments in promoting maternal, childhood and adolescent immunization within their communities.
