Today more than ever, we recognize the importance of health related messages to the public’s health. Public health professionals often construct or contribute to written materials about health topics, materials 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 make your writing more effective.
• Describe the rhetorical triangle and its components, and how it can be used to analyze communication
• Identify assumptions you have about your audience and how these influence your writing
• Construct an empathy map and see how this can help focus your writing
