Designing and Public Health Track Description
Behavior change interventions can vary depending on the audience, infrastructure, budget, and goals. Behavior change theories explain what influences behavior and behavior change models describe the process of successful behavior change. In this session, we will look at behavior change interventions within the context of public health and health communications. Drawing on JSI’s work in public health, discussions will include public health interventions at the national, state, and local levels. The session will include an overview of behavior change theories, frameworks, models, and their implementation and outcomes, and will end with a presentation on a human-centered design approach to solving a public health issue.
Submission Deadline: October 31, 2019 – Midnight Eastern Time.
