Almost every aspect of our lives, from our jobs to our homes, to our sense of community, affects our health. But too often the public and political debate on how to improve health in the UK is focused only on healthcare. To drive forward action to address the widening inequalities in health across the country, we need to change the story.

This Framing Masterclass is suitable for anyone working in public health or health campaigning – including people who do and do not work in a communications role. Places are limited to 30 people, providing a tailored event where you can actively participate, have your questions addressed and connect with peers.

Drawing evidence from over 5 years of health communications research, including work in partnership with the Health Foundation, this one-day Framing Masterclass will include practical tips that you can take away and apply directly to your own communication.
