Event Details

IMPORTANT:  Due to limited space and high demand, we encourage those from the same organization to share a registration and participate on a shared login and teleconference line.


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? Should a tax on unhealthy foods be presented as a fee instead? Moreover, how can we present nutrition policies in a way that will resonate with people of different social and political views? 

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.



Sarah Gollust is an Associate Professor in the Division of Health Policy and Management at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health. She is also an Associate Director of the Interdisciplinary Research Leaders, a new Robert Wood Johnson Foundation program to support leaders engaged in research to advance health equity. Dr. Gollust is a social scientist studying the intersections of communication, politics, and health policy. In her past research, she has examined the roles of news media and public opinion within significant health policy issues, including obesity, nutrition policy, and the Affordable Care Act. She also examines how research is communicated in the policymaking process. She has received grants from the American Cancer Society, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and the National Institutes of Health to support her work. Dr. Gollust was a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health & Society Scholar at the University of Pennsylvania from 2008 to 2010 and she received her PhD in Health Services Organization and Policy from the University of Michigan.
