Description

Linda Mobula (MPH '13), senior health scientist at the World Bank and assistant professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, will give a talk entitled "Creating Public Health Measures that Respect and Engage Communities" as part of the School of Public Health Spotlight Series.

Public health measures and recommendations only work when they are adopted by communities and ingrained into every day life. Occasionally, the public health measures advised or recommended do not line up with community values or cultures, creating tension between local governments and those receiving public health recommendations, and creating a lower chance the recommendations will be adopted. How can public health measures be created to encourage behavioral change while respecting the culture and tradition of a specific ethnic or cultural group? Join us for a conversation on how leaders can build community trust and engagement by creating localized public health measures.
