Communicating Health-Related Research to the Public

A major obstacle to promoting public health is that the public is bombarded by health news, but seldom hears the real story in context. We are committed to helping scientists and the public improve this communication by: (1) Holding town meetings that enable people to become savvy consumers of health-related news; and (2) Publishing stories in plain and accessible language that offer an inside look at recent research relevant to healthy aging. A collection of these stories can be found on this website at The Healthy Aging Corner. Today more than ever, people need access to health news they can use encountering cutting-edge research communication in the correct context.
