From disease outbreaks to the opioid epidemic, public health professionals are no strangers to communicating about crises. What are the crisis communication principles that public health communicators use, and how can they be used in crises that your organization may encounter? This talk will outline best practices and use lots of examples from right here in Arkansas.
