Tough, contentious issues such as gun violence, health equity, and vaccination continue to arise in the public health sphere. To help local health departments address such issues in their communities, NACCHO’s Public Health Communications Committee hosted a closed webinar, “Facilitating Difficult Discussions on Public Health,” which is now available for viewing.
In this webinar, Dr. Anna W. Wolfe, PhD, Texas A&M University, explores the basic principles of public dialogue and deliberation, presents a case study of these principles in action at the local level, and provides tools and resources to help local public health practitioners use dialogue and deliberation to address community issues. The webinar is intended to provide local health departments with a framework for shaping public meetings that facilitate open and honest conversations on public health issues. NACCHO encourages its members to use this webinar as a communications tool for connecting with your jurisdictions.
