Storrs Campus
InCHIP Colloquium Room, Ryan Building, Storrs

Workshop will Feature Joanna Buscemi, PhD Assistant Professor of Psychology at DePaul University.

During the course of the workshop, Dr. Buscemi will describe key components of health policy briefs, how health policy briefs are developed and disseminated, and how to engage endorsing organizations. She will then give attendees some hands on training in crafting their own health policy brief. Attendees will be asked to come to the workshop with an idea for a health policy brief, and Dr. Buscemi will help refine their ideas to draft an effective message and recommendations. She will close with discussion on how policy briefs are presented to legislative aides on Capitol Hill, and how the development and dissemination of the briefs are an important part of advocacy.
