Could the way we present nutrition policies influence their reception—or rejection—by the public?  Which rationales—reducing obesity, offsetting healthcare costs, raising money for social programs or protecting children—are most effective for influencing intent and behaviours?

In this webinar, join Dr. Sarah Gollust, an expert in health communications, as she shares insights from recent research on sugar-sweetened beverages and obesity on how to effectively frame and communicate nutrition policies to a diverse and changing public.
