Public Health Advocacy, Demystified – Part 1 and Part 2 (On Demand-No CE)
Eli Briggs, Founder and Principal of Briggs Strategic Advocacy, provided a two-part webinar series to help public health professionals learn how to communicate effectively to advance policy and advocacy goals. Participants are strongly encouraged to enroll in both sessions, as there will be a brief take-home activity in between sessions to strengthen your advocacy skills related to securing public health funding. In this session, participants will also hear firsthand from a public health practitioner about their advocacy experiences.
